The nrderaicned having secured the exclusive 
ri-^ht for the ab^ve Roofing for the Counties of 
.'^c Vt. Carver, Sibley. LcSueur and* Nicollet, 
would respectfully announce that be is prepared 
to apply this superior Roofing material to buil- 
flings ofall defcriptinns. either new or old. on 
short notice, snd upon the moat reasonable terms. 
The advantages of having this matoriid applied 
to vonr buildings are many : By having a flat 
roof you save all your rafters, both gables and 
one-third of the sheeting ; it can be put on to 
anv slope, either a flat roof or perpendicular 
wall ; it is impervious to water or steam"; it re- 
mains pliable nnderneath ; your insurance wi'l 
cosfless. by half, aaitisemphatically Fire Proof ! 
it will last a hfe time, hence it is the cheapest. 
j Can be applied in repairing imperfections in tin 

I roofs. ... . .

— We inadvertently omitted to men. 
tion last week, the celebration by the 
Catholic church of this town, of Corpib 
Christi. There was a large attendance 
present, and the procession marched 
through our principal streets which were 
decorated with trees and evergreens for 
the occasion, and proceeded to the beau- 
tiful Park of Father Meyers where reli- 
gious exercises were held, after which 
they returned to the Church where ad- 
ditional religions exercises were had 
previous to the benediction. Mr. Col- 
bert of San Francisco states that the 
Catholics of that and adjoining towns in 
Sibley Co. celebrated Corpus Christi. 
with over fifteen hundred persons in the 
procession. 

Personal. — We had the pleasure of 
meeting Hon C H. Lineau, Editor of 
the Volkthlatt. in our town this weelc. 
Mr. Lineau delivered the annual Festi- 
val address We likewise had the same 
pleasure in meeting Capt. O Dreh^r, 
general agent 'for the Yolkihlatt^ who 
was as genial as ever. 

We also cultivated the acquaintance 
of Mr. Sanders, o*" the -'iS^art/s Zeitung," 
wliom we found to be a kindred spirit, — 
to all printers. Gentlemen call again !

Saturday morning, the first day of the 
f6atival ushered in very pleaeantly, and 
with a good prospect of fair weather 
during the entertainment. The people 
from the country began pouring in from 
9 o'clock A. M., and by the time the 
Jeannette Roberts landed at our levee, 
at 4 o'clock p. M., there was some OW 
persons in waiting for the arrival of the 
various Societies, forming the '-bund" 
and the 'Great Western Band." Upon 
the landing of the boat, the Societies 
formed in prucession, with the Band in 
the lead, and marched to the Hall, 
where after congratulatians, the exer- 
cises of the day began. Duetts, Quar. 
tetts, and Choruses, were sung, partica- 
pated in by seven societies, viz ; St. 
Paul, Chaska, Waconia, Benton, Min^ 
neapolis, St. Anthony, and Red Wing, 
In the evening the concert drew a-full 
hoise. This closed the days pro<8etd- 
in}!^, which passed off pleasantly and to 
the entire satisfaction of all. 

Sunday — Hon. C H. Lineau deliver- 
ed a very able annual address. Text 
was: "True Humanity, the platform we 
can all stand upon." It was highly 
spoken of by every one present, being a 
very able and masterly piece of compos- 
ition. It was received with great ap- 
plause. Upon the conclusion of the ad- 
dress singing for the prizes was next in 
order, and occupied a greater share of 
the afternoon. The judges awarded the 
1st prize to the St. Paul Society, and 
the 2d prize to the Benton Society. — 
The Singing was beautiful, and in our 
ear it was difficult to discriminate be- 
tween the various contending Societies, 
where all were so proficient. In the 
evening an amateur Company fronf St 
Paul gave au operatic performance, in 
three acts, which was received with 
great applause by the audience. 

Monday — A business meeting was 
held by the various Societies, for the

Miliiary Auriierily. 

From the New Yjrk Times, (Repub.) 

Gen. Sickles l.as provoked another 
storm in Charleston by issuing an order 
closing all the bar-rooms and revokin; 
the licenses hitherto issued for the sale 
of liquor. The effect of this action ha« 
been to depreciatv.- ihe stooks of the citv 
ten per cent., as ii cuts oil the principal 
source of city revenue. The papers 
comp ain cf the very large n ambers uf 



Much interest is manifested and dis- 
cussion elicited upon the prop(sitio« 
which the Legislature has submitted to 
the people of this State, to provide for 
the payment of the State bonds issued 
to the Land Grant Rail Road Conpan- 
ies, and it is perhaps proper that we 
should express briefly our views of the 
question. 

That those bonds will, sooner or later, 
be paid by the State, we regard as a 

foregone conclusion. They must be compam cf tbe very large nanibers -f 
paid or the State will be indelibly dis- people throwo out of employment at 
graced, and every citizen of the State ! ti»i\e when other employment caoD>t b..

conclusion, that, it is one of the most 
useful and convenient article extant. It 
is also very cheap and economical. We 
do not hesitate in recommending it to the 
public. Messrs. Theis & Clapp, of oar 
town have also purchased the right of 
sale, for Hennepin, Wright, Stearns and 
other counties. 



The River. — The river began re. 
ceeding slowly on Monday last It yet 
extends over a vast extent of Territory, 
as the bottoms are yet one vast extent of 
water. The Otter, St. Anthony and 
Jeannette Roberts still make occasional 
trips up river. 



Academy. — The Moravian Academy 
closed its spring term on Wednesday last 
We understand the children enjoyod a 
very pleasant picnic on the last day. We 
believe there is to be a vacation of two 
months, previous to the opening of tlie 
summer term 



election of officers &c. The following j will bear, wherever he goes the unpleas- 
ant and embarrassing impress of the od- 
ium of 4repudi«tioB. 

Those bonds were issued by the tlirect 
order of the people of the Sute, express- 
ed by an almost unanimous soi ereign 
vote. Every condition precedent to 
their issue was fully performed, and the 
evidence t)f it presented to the execu- 
tive of the State, was such as to lompel 
him to issue them or subject himself to 
impeachment. Why they were not 
made available to accomplish the pur- 
poses for which they were designe d, we 
do not propose to discuss now. V^e may 
hereafter, and when we do, v e shall 
show who and what political party aie 
responsible for the mortifying at d dam- 
aging discredit of those bonds. Those 
matters cannot make any difference now, 
for the faith and honor of the State are 
pledged, and the obligation which that 
pledge imposes on the state caonot be 
avoided, by the efforts of any man or set 
of men, whether honest or demagogical, 
to discredit the bonds in the I ands of 
either the original obligees or their as- 
signs. That pledge and its ot ligation 



Pre*.— H. Meyerdmg, St. Paul,

It was also voted to hold the next fes-

RESOLUTIONS OF THANKS. 

At the executive session of the "Min- 
nesota Sangerbund." at which seven so- 
cieties were represented, the following 
resolutions were pas.sed unanimously: 

Resolved — That in the name of the 
Minnesota Sangerbund and in the name 
of all whe attend this glorious festival, 
we hereby tend -t our heartfelt thanks 
to the citizens of Chaska and vicinity, 
and more especially to the noble ladies, 
tho Concordia and its able director, Mr. 
Kerker, for all they have done to make 
our visit a pleasant one, find to make the 
the festival a complete success. 

Resolved — That these resolutions be 
published in the Minnesota Volkshlatt, 
in the Valley Herald and Minnesota 
Staats Zeitung. 

Monday Evening — At an early hour 
in the evening, the spacious hall was fill- 



obt&tned, and of the number of houses 
thrown upon the hands of the owners 
from the fact that the businesfi for which 
they were leased was broken up. Mili- 
tary authority is not, as a .geoeral rule, 
very considerate about interfering with 
personal interest or private rights.

The Judiciary Committee recently 
sent down to Nashville a confident per- 
son to ascertain the relations that exist- 
ed between J. Wilkes Boo'h and Presi- 
dent Johnson when both were ic Nash- 
ville, during the latter part of the war. 
After interrogating many prominent 
men of both parties, nothing further was 
discovered than that Booth and the then 
military governor of Tennessee had no 
conoectiou with each other whatever. 
Apropos of this, a Nashville paper says : 
— "Strange to relate, General Grant, 
who knew that Booth was a rank rebel, 
and had refused to take the oath, gave 
him a pass to go to New Orleans in the 
early part of 1864, writing and signing 
the document himself.

Mount Hecln, on the island of Iceland, 
15 sUi:htlv under a mile in height. It has 
three peak* :i little elevated above its body, 
uiul along its sides are numerous craters, 
the S4.>ats\>f former eruptions. The crater 
of the principal peak is about one hundred 
feet in depth. It i.^ composed chiefly of 
basalt and lava, but slug-sand aud ashes 
cover a great part of it> surface, and 
obsidian is ainoug its most remarkable pro 

ducts 

There have been forty-throe eruptions 
of mount Hecla rcLordcd within the last 
ihou^aud A ears, tivo of which h»ve been 
simultaneous with Vesuvius, four with 
tho>e ot Etna, and i>ue with those ot 

The hi.st eruption began t«etember 3, 
1S4.5. and lasted until April 6, 1840. On 
the 2;5d of November the torrent of lava, 
two miles from the crater, was a mile in 
width, and froiu 40 to 50 feel in depth. 

Carl Stcinman visited Hecl^ just previ- 
ous to this territic eruption, and had one of 
the narrowest escapes from a horrible death 
I hat ever befel an adventurous man. 

We give his narrative In almost his own 
words : 

On the next morning aftei my arrival at 
the small village at the foot of the volca- 
no, I fmiati,ed"a guide, a faithful, honest 
tVUow . and" set out for a visit to the noted 
t rater. 

From the very first it seemed as it I had 
passed the confines and was entering a new 
world, so entirely ditferent was the scene- 
ry 

A3 vou press upward toward the twus of 
all the horror of burning stuff, you find 
the peril, dreariness and desolation increas- 
es, until at length, its awfulness becomes 
>ubUme ; and, at length, when you stand 
. ,n the topmost point of this burning world 
of chaos, voii instinctively raise your heart 
to God. w'ith a shudder of terror, to restore 
you to the great living world that you have 
left behind you. 

For six mortal hours— three on horse- 
back and threeon foot — I had been clam- 
bering upward ^trom the lower world, and 
iiow, among the clouds and mists that rolled 
around me, I stood in a world of lava 
mountains, ice and snow, the lava black as 
ink, rhe :>now of dazzhng whiteness— aud 
not m all the region the slightest brush, 
shrub, plant, or living creature except the 
guide and myself. ^ 

As far as the eye could discern, when the 
iweeomg clouds aflbrded a view, was a 
succession of dark hills, glistening glaciers, 
snow-capped peaks, and frozen istreams — a 
world devoid of life, the awful soUtude of 
Itself— filled with gaping caverns, terrific 
abysses and Stygian caves, which echoed 
only the builen reverberations of thunder 
or the groanings of the troubled earth be- 
neath. 

So impressive was this scene that I felt a 
strange chill creeping through mc. and I 
shouted to break the horrible stillness 
which wa* more awe-inspiring than the 
thunders of a thousand Niagaras. I fre- 
quently found myself imagining that 1 was 
dreaming, and I was only assured by pinch- 
ing my hmbs or conversing with my guide. 
Drawing my blanket around me to shel- 
ter me from the chilling atmosphere, and 
carefully puncturing the ground with my 
>harp-pointeU otick before me, to make sure 
of my footsteps. I began to pick my way 
over piles and heaps of lava, and pit-falls 
and patches of ice and snow, my guide 
keeping uear me, and often warning me 
when he imagined my footstep? were leatl- 
ing me into danrer. 

Occasumally I struck the fragments of 
lava that rolled down behind me, and 
as yet discovered no signs of the crater, 
which, eighty years before, had vomited 
fortn its tremendous vloume of melted black 
sand. At length, however, I reached the 
summit, and looked down into a sort of 
basin, open at the lower side, and having 
several deep seams or chasms in the centre, 
into which the melted anow or ice on its 
sides were running in small streams. 

A repulsive odor, in the shape of a thin, 
smoky vapor, came up, and I fancied I heart! 
a distant rumbling noise that sounded far 
down in the earth. 

I turned to my guide, and was about to 
speak, when I observed he was trembling 
and as pale as death. 

"What's the matter.^" I asketl, "you 
seem to be frightened." 

"Oh, my God!" he jjasped, "there's go- 
ing to be another eruption.'' 

'How do you know ihaiv Have you 
ever been here before ?" 

" Yes ; but I never saw it look like this. 
When I was here last there was no hollow 
there, but a level piece of snow and ice." 

" Indeed ' " I exclaimed, with intense in- 
terest ; " and you judge that fact to be de- 
cisive, with regard to an eruption ? " 

" Oh, my master," said he in the great- 
est agony, " what else could have caused 
this change? There must be fire below, 
or what has melted this glacier V You see 
thf ice is nearly gone, and what is left is 
ast melting, and will soon follow it." 

I observed at this point that my feet had 
a sensation of warmth, and Bt(X>ping down 
found the ground quite hot. 
" How is this? ' I inquired. 
He shook his head. 

" All wrong ; there's trouble brewing, 
master, as sure as you live. You had bet- 
ter leave." 

I recalled the fact that the last eruption 
of Hecla occurred eighty years before, long 
previous to the birth of ray guide, and con 
sequently he could know as little of that as 
I did. This foolish thought prevented me 
frf)m putting the faith in his words that I 
ought to have done. 

" There is no hurry," I replied ; " I have 
l>een so long finding my way to the top, 
that 1 am hardly disposed to leave until I 
have seen more of the volcano." 

1 observed his paleness and trembling 
increase, if possible, but I still felt a reluc- 
tance to retreat so ignominiously, after 
toiling so hard to reach the summit. 

He stood a moment in silence and then 
ventured again : 

" Let us go while there is time. I am 
afraid to remain here. We may be over- 
whelmed at any moment." 

" Hold on I " said I, sensible of a curiooa 
fascination, such as sometimes comes over 
me when on the brink of the most appall 
mg peril. "It is true the ice has melted, 
but it has done so very gradually. I have 
spent a great deal of time to reach Iceland, 



"AH I ask then, is that you will merely 
wait tor me" 

1 had no right to ask even that, and I \ 
consider the guide a simpleton bccatiso he 
het'iled my retjucst. 

• I will wail." he replied ; " but renum 
ber when you go down that I kept entreat- 
ing you not to do s*>." 

"1 hold vou Mamcltss, whatever should 
occur, so havt: no apprehensions upon that 

score." , . 

The t rater wa.; about twenty yards in 
depth, with sides thai slope so gradually 
that it coulil be dcsccudcd without ditMcully 
ll ordinary care was only exercised. 

I first felt the lava, and found it tiuite 
hot, but uot unpleasantly so, and using my 
stick with great precaution, I begun the 
descent. 1 observed tho temperature of 
the lava beneath my feet couslantlv to in- 
crease, but I had thick shoes and I knew 
they would be unharmetl 

1 noticed, also, a thick, sulphurous odor, 
but considered this nothing unusual, al- 
though it left a thick, disagreeable taste m 
my mouth and gave an unpleasant twinge 
to my olfactories. 

The rill of water made by the meltmg 
ice flowed hissing down, and was lost to 
view in the dark chasm, from which came 
pufls of hot air, accompanied by a rumb 
ling aud trembling of the ground. 

The place, the scene, and withal, the 
sense of danger connected with it held me 
there by a sort of magnetic fascination, and 
I soon found myself strongly tempted to 
make a fatal pluniie into the awful abyss. 
'Conscious that rea.'^on frequently losts her 
power at such times. I forced my.self back- 
ward a few feet, but still remained fearful- 
ly near the opening, heedless of the frantic 
entreaties of my guide. 

Giving no heed, therefore, to his earnest 
solicitations, I now determined, if possible, 
to sountl the depth of the chasm before 
me, and then proceed to examine the 
other. 

For this purpose I pulled on a small 
piece of lava. and. stepping to the very 
edge of the chasm, dropped it down and 
listened to the hollow reverberations, as it 
went bounding from side to side, long after 
it was lost to the eye. 

The depth was so immense, that 1 heard 
it for fully a minute, and then the sound 
seemed rather to die out from distance than 
to cease from the block having reached its 
destination. It was a terrific depth, and as 
I drew back with a shudder a gust ol hot, 
sulphurous air puffed upward, followed 
immediately by a stream like vapor, and a 
heavy, hollow'boom, as if a piece of ord- 
nance had been discharged in the bowels 
of the mountain. 

By this time 1 had regained my common 
sense, and became impressed with the dan- 
ger that hung over me. I turned to fly, 
when all at once there came a rumbling 
crash, and the ground, heaving and shak 
ing and rolhng under me, began to crum- 
ble oft into the dread abyss. 

I was thrown down, and on my hands 
and knees, praving to God for mercy, was 
scrambling over it, and upward, to save 
myself from a most horrible fate, when 
two blocks rolling together, caught my feet 
and legs between them, and without actu- 
ally crushing, held them as m a vise. Then 
came anothei crash and crumble, the lava 
slid awav from behind me, aud I was left 
upon the verge of the awful gulf, now 
widened to some 13 or 20 feet, down into 
which 1 looked with horror strained eyes, 
only to see death and darkness below, and 
breathe the ahnost suffocating vapors that 
rushed up from the seemingly bottomless 

pit. 

Oh, the horrors of that awful reahza- 
tion ! What pen or tongue can portray 
them .' There, over the mouth of a black 
and healed abyss, I was held suspended, a 
helpless and conscious prisoner, to be 
hurled downward by the next great throe 
of trembling nature. 

' Help ! help ! help !— f«r the love oi God, 
help! ' 1 shrieked, in the very agony of my 
despair. 

I looked up and around to catch .^ight of 
my guide, but he, with a commendable 
prudence I could but admit, in my dire ex 
tremity, had sought his own safety in 
flight. 

I had nothing to lely on but the mercy 
of Heaven, audi pj^'vcd to God as I had 
never piayed before for a forgiveness ot my 
Rin3, that they might not follow me to 
judgment. 

It might be a seiuud, it mieht be a min- 
ute, if might bean hour that I should have 
to undergo a Uving death; but, be the time 
long or short, I felt that there was no es- 
cape from a doom which even now makes 
me grow i)ale and shudder when I thinK 
of it. 

Above me, a clear blue sky— beneath 
me, a black and horrible abyss— arouiid 
me, sickening vapors that made my brain 
grow dizay. ^Rumbling and hissing sounds 
warned me that another convulsion might 
take place auv moment, and another would 
be the last o'f me. Home and friends I 
should never see again, and my tomb 
would be the volcanic Hecla ! 

I strove with the madness of desperation 
to disengage my imprisoned limbs, but I 
might have as well attemptetl to move the 
mountain itself. There I was fixed and 
fastened for the terrible death I was await- 
ing. Oh, God of Heaven ! what a fate ! 

All at once I heard a shout, and, looking 
around, I beheld with feelings that cannot 
lie described my faithful guide hastening 
down the .side of the, crater to my relief. 
He had fled in terror at the first ominous 
demonstration, but had nobly returned to 
save me, if possible, by risking hhi life, for 
mine. 

" I warned you, master," said he, as he 
came up, hia eyes starting, and his coun 
tenance expressive of commiseration and 
terror. 

" You did ! you did!' cried I, "but for- 
give and save me, for I am perishing !" 

" I will save you if I can, or perish with 
you." 

The noble fellow instantly set to work 
with his iron pointed stick to break the 
lava around my limbs, but had scarcely 
made any progress when again the earth 
trembled, and the rocks parted, one of 
them rolling down the chasm with a dull 
brraming boimd. 

I .sprang forward — 1 seized a hand of the 

guide — we both struggled desperately, and 

next moment we had both fallen. 



alarm to the villagers, wbt> joinwl us in 
our flight across the couutry till a safe dis- 
tance was gained. 

A few days later, when the mighty and 
long extinct Hecla was convulsing the 
Island, auil pouring lorth its tremendous 
volume of melted lava, I was far out upon 
the Atlantic, on my way home, where I 
devoutly thanked <i(Hl again and again 
that I had liveil to tell my wonderful es 
cape from a death in its burning crater. 

A tiiiisuntU- Ani. MCory. 

At his lecture in New Ybrk, on Eqnalor- 
tal Africa, M. Du Chaillu told the following 
big ant story : 

Ha.<>hskonay is the name given it by the 
Uakalai. There are two other varieties of 
Bushikonay beaide the black kind. These 
black Baiihikouay may well be talleil the 
lonla of the forest. It is the most voiaci»»u« 



aeaturc 1 ever met. It is the dieml of all 
hving animals, from the leopanl to the 
smallest iusect.-i. It is their habit to march 
thiough the forests in a long, regular line, 
a hue about two im lies broad and often 
several miles in length , all along this line 
are larger ants, who act as offlcers— stand 
ontside the ranks, and keep this singular 
army in on^i. If thoy come to a place 
where there arc no lives to shelter them 
from the t>un, whose heat they cannot bear, 
Ihev immciliatdy build an underground 
tunnel, through which Ihc whole army 
pass in rolumus to the forest beyond. 

When they grow hungry, as by a sudden 
commaud, the long tile spreads itself 
through the forest, advancing forward, 
attacking antf devouring all hving things 
with a fury that is quite irresistible. The 
elephant and gorilla fly before them ; the 
black men run away ; every animal that 
lives iu their line of march is chased. In 
an incredibly short space of time those 
that are caught are overwhehned, killed, 
eaten, and only the bare sk<.leti)n remains. 
They seem to travel day and night. Many 
a time have I been in the water to save 
mvself from them. When they enter a 
house they clear it of everything. Cock- 
roaches are devoured in an instant , rats 
and mice spring around the room in vain. 
They will not touch vegetable matter, thus 
they are very useful, clearing the country 
of many inseets. When on their march 
the insect world flies before them, and I 
have often had the approach of a Bashiko- 
nay army heralded to me by this meaus. 

W herever they go they make a clean 
sweep, even ascending to the top of the 
trees in pursuit of their pjey. Their man- 
ner of attack is an impetuou.s leap ; in- 
stantly the strong pincers are fastened, and 
j thejr only let go when the piece gives way. 
At such a time this little insect seems ani- 
mated by a kind of fury which causes it to 
disregard entirely its own safety. The ne- 
groes relate that criminals, by which they 
generally mean wizards, have sometime 
been exposed an the path of the Bashi 
konay ants, tied to a tree so they might 
not escape, and then been devoured to the 
bones. They are larger than any ants we 
have in America. The number of one of 
their armies is so great that one does not 
like to enter into calculations, but I have 
seen a continuous line passing at a good 
speed a particular. place for twelve hours. 
So you may imagine how many millions 
there may have been. 

IVoTel Attempt to Escape. 



A Sing Sing correspondent describes the 
ingenious method«dopted by a convict to 
escape from the prison : 

" One of the most ingenious men I ever 
met, I found here, by the name of James 
Dunn, a medium sized, middle aged, dark 
compleiioned man. He was there for the 
third time, and was kept under stricter 
surveillance than some others in conse- 
quence of repeated attempt* and contriv- 
ances to escape, the most ingenious of 
which was this About three months af- 
ter his second commitment, having secured 
a quantity of gutta percha from the con 
tractor's agent, he made a water-tight coat, 
with a hood or head-dress attached to it. 
In the front part of the hood he securely 
fixed a small pane of thick glass. From 
each side guttapercha horns were extended

at the further end of each tube waa fixed a 
hollow * decoy duck.' 

•With this equipage he stole away to 
the edge of the river. Here he put a stone 
in each pocket for ballast, and donned his 
gutta percha rig, made it tight about his 
waist and w rists, and taking up his ducks 
he waded in a crouching posture out some 
two hundred feel and let them go. On he 
traveled, with the water Ijvo to four feet 
above his head, breathing meanwhile 
through his ducks, which were floating 
along about eight feet in his rear. The 
guards saw the ducks, and would have 
shot them had they not been on duty. 
With some inconvenience he reached the 
upper dock, where a friend met him, fur- 
nished huu with citizen's clothes, r few 
dollars in money, and otherwise hiiStened 
his retreat, not, however, so but that he 
was soon overhauled and returned to his 
old quarters. He was here this time on a 
ten years' commitment but was transfer led, 
with a company of fifty, not long since, to 
Clinton prison.''

to this day. Look, again, at Demosthenes, 
lie rushes trovo. the Athenian Assembly 
burning with shame, for he has been hoot- 
ed for his pronunciation and detecllvo 
style. In the moment ol his degradation 
he meets an actor named Satyrus. Was it 
chance or his good genius that threw hini 
in his way V tialyrus teaches him the art 
of elocution, and amid the wild roar of 
waves, with pebbles* in his mouth, he cor- 
rects the vices of his utterance, and ac- 
quires pungency and r«»rcc which utme 
have e(iualled. No grit of the pebble 
roughened his lip when next he uiouuteil 
the roslruui, and poured on the astonished 
audience a thnwl of eUiqucnce, impetuous 
ami flashing a.s a mountain torrent. 

in science, as in literal ure, slight causes 
iwCasion grent results; nor need we go 
liack III the ancientain older tti find extra 
ordinary incidents. When Galileo was 
study lug medicine in the UnivcrsiVy of 
Pisii, his attention was attracted to the reg 
ular osrillation of a lamp suspended from 
the itH)l of the Cathedral, und the swing- 
ing lamp led to his study of the vibration 
of Pendulums. Brunuelhuichi by accident 
broke an egg, which remained standing on 
the broken base, and the shape of the 
shell inspii-cd him immedialdy with the 
idea of iht^ Duomo at Florence. Giotto, 
while tending his flock, sketched a sheep 
t»n a stone, and (^iniabue, pa.ssinp by, de- 
tected his latent genius, and led him on to 
fame— to the friendship of Dante, and to 
having his name immortalized in the Uivi- 
na Commedia. Newton— but why tell of 
that falling apple iu his orchard, which is 
better known than the laws of gravita- 
tion, to the discovery ol which it led. 
Cuvier dissected a cuttle-fish, and the 
comparative anatomy of the entire animal 
kingdon unfolded itself before huu. A 
single remain ol an extint-t animal or veg 
etable became a standpoint from which 
he could infer aud describe tne form and 
properties of th«it creature or plant to 
which it belonged ; and the subsequent 
discovery of further remains of the same 
species often proved the accuracy of his 
deductions. This use of fossil fragments 
is another illustration of the importance 
of little things and isolated inductions. 
Kepler resolved to fill his cellars from the 
Austrian vintage but doubting the accura- 
cy of the wine merchant's measure he, 
worked out one of the earliest samples ot 
what Is now called modern analysis. What 
suggested the embossed alphabet for the 
blind ? A sheet of paper sent from the 
press, with the letters accidentally raised. 
What calleti forth the most learned book 
on diseases of the heart? A physician's

of his own. Giotto is not the onlv genius 
whom a chance visit has rescued from ob- 
scurity. Evelyn was sauntering one day 
along a meadow uear Say's Court, when 
he looked in at the window of a thatched 
cottage, and saw a man carving one of 
Tintoretto's cartoonn. He entered, ad- 
mired the work, and soon recommended 
the artist tc Charles U. Thus the name 
of Gibbins became known. Milton sees a 
wretched "mystery " in Italy, and conceives 
the plan of " Paradise Lost." The plague 
breaBLs out ii Loudon , he retires to Chal-

friend calls forth "Paradise Regained." 
Gibbon muses amonglhe ruins of Roman 
Grandeur; and the Dechne and Fall of 
the mighty Eoapire breaks in long perspec- 
tive on his vi^w. A Welsh harper thrills 
the chords at Cambridge, and Gray, fired 
with sudden caotion, writes the conclusion 
of the " Bard." Lady Austin points to a

In the course of nature there is nothing 
more remarkable than the stupendous re- 
sults which spring from apparently insigni- 
ficant causes. The oak that lives for ages 
was once an acorn ; and the nightingale 
filling the groves with song was lately a 
tiny egg. The glorious being who, by the 
aid of resaon, can subdue the strongest and 
most ferocious of beasts, what is he at his 
birth ? A creature made up of cries and 
tears, as Pliny has forcibly expressed it, 
"flena animal ccpteriti impcraturum"— a 
weeping animal who is to rule over all 
others. Nay, trace him to his embryo 
state ; what is he there but a spot— an atom 
which this Ufe only. develops and whose 
destinies are endless as they are great ? The 
long continuance of the results of slight 
causes is also very observable in nature. 
A stone cast into the sea on our coast pro- 
duces a rippling displacement of watery 
particles, prolonged even to the Antipodes. 
Such phenomena lead us to conclude that, 
in the system of the universe, nothing is 
absolutely small or great, since the great 
issues include the small, and the small in- 
volves the great. 

The course of human society prei^ents in 
this respect a constant counterpart to that 
of nature ; and the history of mankind il- 
lustrates in every page the reniar.; of 
Bishop Butler, that " things, seemingly the 
most insignificant imaginable, are perpetu 
ally observed to be necessary conditions to 
other things of the greatest importance." 
A biography is a calendar of straws. 
Straws have turned the current of our 
lives ; a wortl. a thought vivid as lightning, 
has often decided our destiny. Marc Antony 
sees Cleopatra on the Cydnus sitting in her 
barge as on a burnished throne, and if her 
nose had only been shorter he might have 
kept the world. The Prophet Mahomet 
conceals himself in Mount Shur, and his 
pursuers, acconling to a Moslem tradition, 
are thrown off the scent and bafllwd by a 
spider's web over the mouth of the cave 
Thus the Koran, the Crescent, the Cru- 
sades, with their boundless conbCtiueuces, 
depended at that moment on the fll 
my meshes of a spider's web. A young 
Atheuian, named Xenophon, at sixteen 
years of age, is met in a narrow gateway 
by a man of extraordinary appearance 
and manners, who extends his stick across 
the path and asks, " How can one attain to 
virtue and honor ? " Xenophon cannot 
answer, and Socrates, for the strange being 
is none other, bidding him follow, bect>mcs 
the njuefor ward his master ih philosophy. 
Rut 'for that stick, that narrow gatewa^-, 
Xenophon, perhaps, would never have en 
richea the world of letters as he has done 



'Mark Twain" admires the present 
fashion of women's walking drwases, and he 
thus eloquently sings their praise ; 

" Who shall'describe the exquisite taste 
aud beauty ot the new style of ladies' 
walkmg dresses. Taken as a class, women 
can contrive more outlandish and ugly 
costumes than one would think possible 
without the gift of inspiration. But this 
time they have been felicitous in invention. 
The wretched waterfall still remains, of 
course, but in a modified form; every 
change it has undergone was for the bet- 
ter. First, it represented a bladder of 
Scotch snuff; next, it hung down the wo- 
man's back like a canvas-covered hafti ; 
afterward il contracted, and counterfeited 
a turuip on the back of the head ; now, it 
sticks straight out behind, and looks like a 
wire muzzle on a gray-hound. Nestling in 
the midst of this long stretch of head and 
hair reposes the Uttle batter-cake of a 
bonnet, like a jockey saddle on a race- 
horse. You will readily jjeiceive that this 
looks very unique, and pretty and coquet- 

tish- 

" But the glory of the costume is the robe 
—the dress. No furbelows, no flounces, no 
biases, no ruffles, no gores, no flutter- 
wheels, no h«ops to spcaK of— nothing but 
a rich, plain, narrow black dress, lei-min- 
aled just below the knees with long saw 
teeth (points downward), and under it a 
flaming red skirt, enough to put your eves 
out, that reaches down only to (he ankle 
bone, and expobes the restless little feet 
Fascinating, charming, seductive, bewitch- 
ing ! To see a loyeTy girl of seventeen, 
with her sadtlle on her head, and- her muz- 
zle on behind, and her vail just ctn'ering 
the end of her nose, come tripping along

churn on fire, is enough to set a man wild.

The author of "A Night in Work- 
house," which created considerable interest 
in England at the time of ita appearance, 
has published in the February number of 
JjOiuiuii Horittji an account of a Saturday 
evening passed by him in the shoj) of a 
Londen pawnbroktir. This description is 
full of mournful interest, as our mind 
wanders from the actual scene and follows 
the retiring guests t<j their homes of misery 
and vice; "It Is a corner hoUKc, and the 
shop, which faces th : high stjreet is an in- 
nocent jeweler's shop, and nothing more. 
There are neatly written cards in tho win- 
dow, variously ins<Tibt(l, 'jewelry re- 
paired,' ' watch glasses fitted,' ' latlies ears 
j)iered,' eel. ; so that even ' though one 
should happen to be seen entering Mr. 
Gawler's shop— nay, even though an in- 
quisitive brute should be mean enough to 
Huy from outside, antl see one hand his 
'Dent' to Mr. Gawl»;r, und receive in ex 
change for it a neatly folded bit of paste- 
board — the evidence of the |iaw niug would 
be anything but complete ; watch-glasses 
will come to grief, aud watch works need 
repair, aud il is the commonest thing in 
the worl ' for the watchmaker to give the 
owner a memorandum, as security for his 
property." But it i.s not on watch and 
trinket pawners that Mr. Gawler relies 
for his business. "Up the stieet, by the 
side ot the innocent looking jewelry shop 
—a longish way up the street — is a mean 
looking doorway that niighi be the en- 
trance to a back yard. That it is something 
more than this, however, may be at once 
perceived by the stone threshold wom 
through to the bricks beneath, and the 
door post, paint- rubbed and grimy of elbow 
grease. This is the poor pawners' entrance. 
On Saturday night, when the laborers re- 
ceive their pay for the week's-work, this 
shop becomes a scene of unusual activity. 
Many of the articles pawned during the 
week are redeemed, to l>e again pawned 
when the earnings of the week shall have 
been expended. In a long line of little 
boxes the apphcants stand concealed from 
view^ save their hands, whitih are thrust 
through small apertures to dehver the tick- 
ets and receive the goods. It was an odd 
sight to see this long row of grimy fists 
and tattered gown and jacket ant* coat 
cuffs all poked toward the shopman and 
beckoning hiii coaxmgly. Beginning at 
box number one David began the collec- 
tion of the little squares of pasteboard 
with both his hands, and ' hand over hand" 
as one may say, with a dexterity only ti> 
be acquired by constant practice, crying 
out, 'Tickets! tickets! tickets!' ail the 
while. IJy the time he had perambu 
latcd the length of the shop, and called 
at all the boxes he had gathered as 
many tickets as his fists could hold and at 
OBce turned to a back counter where stood 
John (the other shopman). The tickets 
were then sorted and the heavier articles 
brought from the cellar, the lighter ftom 
the garret, and jewelry from the strong 
room, and delivered to the applicants as 
speedily as possible. Redemption was the 
order of the evening ; still there were nu- 
merous cases in which it was necessary to 
barter rather than by ready money pay- 
ments. As, for instance, Mrs. Brown, be- 
ing a laimdress, has found it necessary to 
pawn the table-linen belonging to one of 
her customers, and not having money at 
her command to redeem the same, she feels 
it convenient to 'put away' the shirts ot 
another cu3tomer» aiid thus make matters 
square. On Monday she will redeem the 
shirts of customer number two by pawning 
the sheets of customer number three. Or, 
again, as, for instance, the Browns are 
are asked by the Greens to come and Save 
a bit ol dinner to-morrow, and have ac- 
cepted the invitation ; but Brown has made 
a bad week ; has not earned enough, indeed.

man were engaged with Mr. Lincoln, that 
a Mr. Whitney asked the circle-to take 
something to drink. All assented except 
Mr. Lincoln. Mr. Whitney urged hkn, 
but he decUned on the plea that he never 
drank. "Come, Mr. Lincoln, and take a 
glass of lager ; that's a harmless beverage, 
and il will do you good "—to which urg- 
ing Mr. Lincoln finally in the kindness of 
his heart assented. The lager made him 
very sick.. 

U was the first and la^t tmie that tue 
two men met until Mr. Whitney joined 
the throng on one public reception day to 
shake hands with the beloved President. 
Imagine his surprise as he drew slowly 
near iu the procession that passed in 
front of the President, to see that long 
arm stretched out to him and hear this 
recognition: "How do you do, Mr.

nal benefit to " the church and to the so- 
ciety." Having ascended a slight elevation 
in the load the deacon observeil about a 
bundled yards ahead,, stretched on his 
broadside," right across the narrow wagon 
track, basking in a mud puddle, a huge, 
fat, lazy hog, weighing probably mortitban 
three hundred pounus. 

" Look there, elder," said the deacon, 
nervously, "see that old hog across the 
road. Turn «iut." 

" I see, sir, " said the elder. " I can't 
turn out." 

" But you must, or we shall be turned 
over." 

" Can't do it. sir, I have the right to the 
road. The hog must give way." 

Pony trotted on. 'They drew high the 
hog. 

" I tell you," said the deacon, now ner- 
vously excited, " turn out or wc arc gone." 

" Never fear, sir, the hog must clear out." 
By this time they were nearly to a stand- 
still, the elder presuming that could he 
arouse the attention of the sleepy beast, he 
would at once rise and clear the track. 

But uo^ his hogship just raised his head, 
gavtt a ^ight glance at the little buggy, 
and with a short grtmt laid down in the 
mud. 

The end was, the elder had to make a 
short turn out, and take a circuit round, 
while the hog fcmaiucd " master of the 
svluatson," the elder having regained the 
track, and the squire h»s compoBure (the 
d rivet r»thdl- crest fallen). " Elder," said 
the dfeacon^" when I am on the road (and 
he Jdrove mui*) 1 never stop to contend 
with a hog. I think it is better to turn 

out." 

The deacon ended, and tlie cider &at for 
some mlnuUss, silently revolving in ihis 
mind the deacon's mle about hogs, and liia 
obvious moral. And the rule " never to , 
stand In the road to contend with a hog," 
hasbeefi<me of the most useful riUea of 
his Mq.— National Baptist.

— The Tennessee papers tell a funny story 
ol the exploits ot a negro who, a short time 
since found a bag of gold in a hollow log. 
He converted his gold into five-twenties, and 
had over $4,000. He went to New Orleans, 
worked ma barber shop, studied evenings, 
acquired a good knowledge i»( English and 
French, and in March last wont to Europe 
as an attendant of an ex Confederate Gene- 
ral, and now turns up us the proprietor of 
a first class American restauiant in the Paiis 
Exposititm. 

— An Eastern paper iudulgeo iu the be- 
lief that many young men marry various 
scraps and bits of a wife, instead of the 
genuine article. It says : " Some young 
men marry dimples ; some ears ; some 
noses ; the contest, however, generally lies 
between the eyes and hair. "The mouth, 
too is occasionally married ; the chin not 
so often." A caution is then given to 
heedless youth to beware of marrymg a 
curl, however natural-looking , a neck, 
however swan like . or a voice, however 
melodious. 

— During the last winter's snow storms 
the road from Syracuse to Oswego was 
heavily obstructed. A train which was 
blocked up on the road had to offer its 
passengers the usual amount of starvation 
and impatience in the place of progress. 
Among the passeugers was a lady with a 
little boy, for whom she had paid half fare. 
The conductor ou his ninety -ninth round 
— taken, probabU', for the purpose of pass- 
ing away the time — stopped in front of 
this ladv, and looked at the tickets and 
looked 'at the boy. " This boy is too 
large to travel for half fare," said he. 
" He wasn't when he started ! " retorted 
the mother. 

— E. P. Harrington, the Detroit diver, 
came near losing his life last Wednesday, 
lUth. He was at work under fifty feet of 
water, when the air-pipe buist with a loud 
report. His assistants in the boat imme- 
diately drew him up, but the weight of his 
dress, and the necessarilj' cramped and in- 
convenient place iu which the men 
worked, rendered them unable to lift him 
out or give any further assistance, until a 
tug boat came to their relief. Harrington 
received prompt medical assistance, but 
was at last accounts in a precarious condi- 
tion. His neck and face were badly 
swollen, and shortly after his dress was re- 
moved he vomited blood and water. 

— I have, says an exchange, seen a wo-

I have seen her. at a meeting iu behalf of

— Another chapter in the Norwich child- 
starving case has appeared in the form of 
a letter from Sarah A. Mann, the alleged 
paramour of Williams. Miss Mann denies 
that she practiced free-loveism with Wil- 
liams, as charged, although, she says, she 
expectal to marry him. She denies the 
story of cruelty to tho child, wht)m she 
accuses of testifying falsely against its falu- 
er. She makes outthat a great wrong has 
been done Williams ; that he never wa.s an 
uukind parent; while his daughter is full 
of deception and iniquity. Still Miss Maun 
thinks Williams has gone ci-azy from plac-

telligences."* "We .^hall know more about 
this case soon, as Miss Mannis under $2,000

Cosmopolitan notes the fact that at the lay- 
ing of the first stone of the Hall of Arts 
by the Queen recently, the flag of every 
nation, except that of the United States, 
floated from the building. As the flags 
were provided by the Admiralty, it may be 
pertinent to say that perhaps the American 
ensigns captured aud lodged at the Admi-

them out of their custody.

— The shortest passage yet made across 
the Atlantic has been made bj' the new 
German steamship Cimbria. She left 
Hamburg at the same time that the Persia 
left Queenstown, and came into New York 
harbor but a short distance behind the 
Persia. She made the run of 3,41)1 miles, 
from Hamburg to New York, in ten days 
and seventeen hours, which is equivalent 
to nine days seven hours from Southamp- 
ton, or eight daj's and seven hours from 
Queenstown. 'The Cimbria thus beats the 
Persia, once the crack ship ot the Cunard 
liue, about two days. The average speed 
of the Cimbria was 326 miles a day. 

— The island of Ralatea is ruled over by 
a King who is a son of the well-known 
Queeu Pomare. Having been persecuted 
by his people on account of his fondness 
for alcoholic liquors, he detcruiined to have 
his little weakness constitutionally guaran- 
teed. At the recent session ol the Parlia- 
ment, he drew up, and present*^ for them 
to pass, a law by which he was authorised 
to get drunk whenever and wherever he 
wished. The Parliament modified It, al- 
lowing him to get drunk whenever he 
wished, but not outside of his palace. The 
King, not liking the law as amended, vetoed 
'" and some ot his subjects began to rebel 



friends at 23 East Cliff, Dover, that the 
ship is about to go down ; he begs that his 
friends will pay all his bills, and trusts that 
Nora will get over it in time. The ship is 
two days' sail from the Line, outward

—Among Messrs. Schneider & Co's 
10,000 workmen, 500 have within the last 
six years become proprietors of the com- 
fortable model cottages erected by the firm. 
They form altogether quite a la»^e town, 
of not less Uian 23,000 inhabitants, whose 
natural increase proves by statistics to be 
l«iur times llie aveiage ol France in gen- 
eral, the mortality of children lieing re- 
markally small. There is no poverty from 
.sickness, accident or death, for the unfor- 
tunate are amply provided for by the pro- 
vident fund to which all able to work pay 
21.,' per cent, of their wages. The fund 
now amounts to $60,000, and there are 
also $50,(XX) of the workmen's wages in 
the savings banks. There is no magistrate, 
uo lawyer, and no policeman in tlie com- 
munity, and the number of crimes is less 
lliitu t he average proportion of the country 
at large. 

— Among the numerous experiments 
which may be made with Ruhmkorff's 
machine, there is a remarkable one imag- 
ined by M. Chautanl, professor of natuiul 
philosophy at Nancy. A quantity of 
flowers ot sulphur is mixed with a .small 
proportion of iron filings, or better still, 
with inui reduced by hydrogen, In wbich 
ciise it is in quite an impalliblc state ; zinc 
and copper filing may also be added in 
small quantities. Tb» mixture which 
must be as complete as possible, is then 
thrown on a pane of glass or a dry brick, 
8o as to form a heap tw* or three centi- 
metres in height, and much longer than it 
It IS broad. If the ends ol the wires of 
Rubmkortt 's machine l>e now inserted in- 
to the heap, so as to be two or tbiee centi 
metres' distance from each other, and the 
current made to pass through, a violent 
explosion of the mass takes place, a sort 
of crater ia loimed, whence magnificent 
sheaves of fire will be seen to issue, 
much resembling the bouquet of fireworks, 
aud, like.. it, displaying diflerent colors. 
It IS in reality a miniature volcano with 
Bubleiraugau noises, aud ejections of boil-

Even in France they do not manage the 
title to railway seats to the complete satis- 
faction and peace of travelers. Mme. 
Doche, the actress, was returning to Paris 
from the provinces. She got out' at a sta- 
tion and placed her shawl in her seat to 
show she put in continual claim to it. L pou 
her return she lound it occupied by an old 
lady.' Mme. Doche insisted the place be- 
longed to her. The old lady declared rail- 
way la*- to be first come first served. Mme. 
Doche went to call the railway officials, 
but by the time she could summon them 
the starting bell rang, and she was obliged 
to take refuge iu the first carriage open — 
it was the smoking-carriage, and she detests 
tobacco. The next station was two hours 
distant, for it was an express train. Suffo- 
cated even more by anger than tobacco 
smoke, Mme. Doche leaped from the car- 
riage, ran to ber old carriage, opened the 
door, and screamed at the elderly lady : 
" Will you give me my seat now ?" " No." 
"W^ell, we'll see!" Mme. Doche opened 
the door and sat herself in the old lady's 
lap, screaming ; " I shall go to Paris iu this 
way unless you give me my seat." The 
passengers leaped from their carriages 
tliinking there must be an assassination, 
and when they saw the cause of the scan- 
dal they laughed heartily. The old lady 
(aiuted, and Mme. Doche took possession 
of her seat.

W. M. Mekwin, of Milford, Conn., who

places anil under all circumstances it 
will be a hard matter to find the grape 
that will take the preference over the Con- 
cord. In my opinion it has yet to be in- 
troduced." 

The varieties oi the tomato should be 
grown as remote from each other as the 
extent of the ground will admit of, for the 
reason that their fructifying infiuences 
when they are in bloom, injure each other, 
and make the varieties impure, just as cu- 
cumbers and muskmelous destroy each 
other's,flavor when growing close together. 
Cucumbers will taste of melons aud melons 
taste of cucumbers. 

A FARMER in Iowa destroyed the grub- 
worms that were destroying his corn by 
catching moles aud putting them m his 
corn field The moles may be caught by 
the use of cows' horns with the pith out. 
So saya an exchange, but we think those 
farmers who have tried to rid their fields 
of moles would have little confidence in 
that kind of trap. There is no doubt that 
moles destroy a large number of insects 
and grubs.

—then I put in meal enough to make it

thick or too thin, but I hadn't quite meal 
enough, and I was too confounded lazy to 
get any more, so I took the flour box and 
poured it right in. about half a box tuU, 
aud that made it just right tor thickness. 
Then the saleratus— I guess i know justly 
how much there was of that, for I took it 
up three times on the end of a spoon, and 
when I put it in, it was all of a foam, and 
then I jerked it into the oven.

course not," continued Mr. Browaly, '• you've 
always been our favorite !'" Theu aivancing and 
taking poor Smithbon's band, he saic : "Take her

Thereupon latbei aiid mollier and clil drou crowded 
around SmlthMOu and wished himjov, and com-

to them as a profound secret. So Smithson got a

thinking be was hunted into maUImoiiy. 

An Old Axe. — A few days since, Na- 
than Salisbury, Esq., living in East Scott, 
Cortland County, found a very peculiar 
axe. The circumstances are as follows: 
At an early day, when Mr. Salisbury, in 
company with others, was chopping and 
clearing the forest of his newly acquired 
farm, they came upon a very la -ge hemlock 
standing near thc stream. After cutting 
the tree down, Mr. Salisbury discovered 
that what appeared to be the tieart of the 
tree, was really a separate tn;e from the 
one just fallen. On examination, it was 
found that this tree within a tiee had been 
girdled at some previous time, leaving a 
small portion uncut so that the sap had 
continued to traverse the trunk until its 
growth had completely overgrown the 
girdling, and another tree was formed, 
growing to enormous dimensions. 

A few days since, near the t runk ot that 
tree about twelve inches below the surface, 
was found this peculiar axe. It is about 
ten inches in length, by three and one- 
fourth inches on the cut or edge. It is 
made of iron. Now, what is remarkable 
"ibout this tree and axe, is this — that the 
girdling or packing of the inner tree cor- 
responds precisely with the an e found, and 
counting the concentric rings c f the growth 
of the outer tree, is found th( remarkable 
fact that the inner tree was girdled about 
one hundred years before the landing of 
the Pilgrims. Who was in that locality 
using an axe three hundred ard fitty-seven 
years ago ?

— It is related as a singular instance of 
ignorance in our own resouicea in nayal 
wartare, that while the Monitor's 15 inch 
guns were used originally with only thirty- 
hve pounds of powder, sine*; the war a 
charge •>f one hundred pourds has been 
safely used ; while at the recent trial of the 
20 inch gun at Fort Hamilton the charge 
were gradually raised from one hundred 
and twenty -five pounds of mainmoth-grain 
powder at the first shot to two hundred 
pounds at the fourth shot. It was only a 
short time since that it was considered 
quite a feat when a hundred pounds were 
hre in a 20-inch gun, in an e.iperiment in 
New York harbor, although the charge 
was so small in proportion to he bore that 
the artillerists had to ram il in with a 
cushion of haj' to bring it up to the vent. 
With the knowledge of the rjal power of 
the gun, our means of demolismng ene- 
mies vessels and forts is vas'ly increased. 
It is certain that a ball weighing 1,080 
pounds, propelled by the ex jlosive forcr 
of two hundred pounds of pc wder, is sure 
to make the splmters fly wh<;rever it hits. 

— The most curious idea has recently 
been patronized in the very highest quar- 
ters—namely, mourning bou^u«ts chiefly 
composed of sombre leaves and weeping, 
head-hanging flowers of didl 'X)lors.

Reapar ator Capilli- 

Throw away your false frizzes, your awithes, 

your wig — 
Destructive of comfort, and not wertb s fig ; 
Come aged, come youthful, come ugly and fair. 
And rejoice in your own luxuraut hair. 

REAPAUATOR CAPILLI. 

For restoring hair upon bald heads, (from 
whatever causae it may hav« fallen out) end forc- 
ing a growth of hair upon the face, it ha* no 
equal. It will force the beard to grow upon the 
smoothest fa'^e in from five to eight weeks or 
hair upon bald heads in from two to three mouths. 
A few ignorant practitioners have asserted that 
there is nothing that will force or hasten the 
giowth of the hair or beard. Their assertions 
are false, as thousands of living, witness (from 
their own experience) can bear witness. But 
many will f'av, how are we to distinguish the 
genuine frorn the spurious ? It certainly is dif- 
ficult, as ninc-teuths of the different Preparations 
adveitised for the hair and beard aie entirely 
worthless, and you muv have already thrown a- 
way large amounts in tbeir purchase, io such 
we would say, try the Keparator CappiUi; it will 
cost vou noihing unless it fully comes up to our 
rcpre'sentattons. If your Druggist does not keep 
it send us one dollar and we will forwaid U, 
postpaid, together with a receipt for the money, 
which will be returned to you on application, 
providing entire satisfactiou is not given.

Wits i>t' tlif tiaest silk. 'Then she hsitl a liij

\v:U6l vou couU alimibl span. 1 loved rsel- 
ly. bnt, a«i for tl\at, all Ihr youu.ir chaps of 
the villajeweri' (»f the samomind, an*) she 
mijtht havi' had hcr{>i(kof iis. The worst 
niil \va» she treated ii8 aU alike, and 
wouidut look at one mi>re I hiui another. 
She had a strnle for everybody, and was al- 
ways iro(>d tempered. V)ut there it ended, 
.ind. *>mehow, none of us could screw up 
e<«urage lo trj' her farther. 1 doa't know 
how ottcn 1 thougal it over. It came into 
my head l!io tir^t ihiui; iu the morning, 
and there it \v.>uld remain the last thius; at 
nisrht. when it eitlior kept me a\yake or 
liaunted mv ilreams. At la^t it quite took 
possosoiou of me. N'o matter where 1 was. 
di^jging. or blasting, or innneling; above 
ijfound or dt>wii in'"thei)it; my thoughts 
turned on Nelly, and fr<»in belli;; the im r 
riest fellow in the viilairc. 1 just eame to be 
the ilulltsl. Ouv moniuig there was no 
woikiulhepit foi my gang, because I tie 
viewer wauled that part ef the seam shored 
up. nnd it ^trUL■k me, all at ouce, that I 
would have it out with Nellie, so I made 
mv*e'f smart, aud set oil', vralking as brisk 
as if it was a wager. You may think it 
conceit iu me, bull cau see that I was then 
as clever a chap to look at as you would 
otten see— aud 1 kue<v it ! For all that, I 
l»e«au to walk a bit slow as I caiigbt sight 
ol^Mrs. Glover's cottage, and I felt a dread 
at my heart. Bnt 1 went on, and I just got 
up lo the cottage, wheu who should come 
oat but Nelly herself. She never looked 
prettier than at that minute; but appear- 
ing *o suddenly, she dashed my spirit, and 
i hadn't a word to say to her. 

" Why, Charley, what is the matter ?" 
she cried, iu a frightened sort of way. 

'♦ Well. It is just this," I said. And there 
1 stopped. 

"is anything wrong with Jack," she 
cried, quickly. 
'■ Jack '" 

" Yes, he is downiu the pit, and they say 
It is foul, whif h makes mother and me un- 
easy. Vou haven't heard anything'" 
Au'd she looked iu my eyea as if she would 
starch mc through. 

" No, no '" I answered, steadying, now 
that I thought 1 could comlort her. ' He 
IS all right. Y'^ou mustn't mind what the 
old women of the village say, or you'll be 
lixiking for a blow up every day in the 
year, when there's nothing more than com- 
mon. I haven't come lu tell you about 
•Tack, Nelly ; it's about myself" 

She gave me another liK>k now ; then 
her chttk llushed up like a tlame, aud her 
eyevS turned away. 

" Do vou know what I want to say, Nel- 
ly ; 1 went on. '" 1 wish you did. for I can- 
not tell it. It is more than I have got 
words for. Howl love you, how you are 
ahvavs before me, how I am crazed and 
mad "about you : But though I can't sa^ 
aU I want to, here I stand, and I wouldn t 
ohaiige with a king if you'll take me as I

"trr there will Ihj a»M)ther exploaioa di-

" I'll iio Jown. aiivh«iw." I sjiid, doggedly, 
"and it^il«>bodv will l<»W|ir me, I'll jiiiup

men and wotueii -atmie of the w«>men cry-

oiit that war there was a dead silence. 
Then two or "tliree called out : " Ooojl by. 
C'hnrlev ; God bless yini, brave latl." The 
baiiksiiien lowered me down, ai.d I sank 
through Ihi- i>it's mouth. A Davy-lamp 
was tied loutul niv waist, imd I held a n>pe

nnv alive. Onv thing, 1 didn't care about

a-hameti to face the lolks ab»>ve without

Uuiv lowtJiMl UM> Ait *uuk «^ tuiail'M pacit, axi<' 
' I kept looknig up ftud down to measure 
theili.'-lanee \k U) be traverseil. The slmft 
had never stjtmed so iltep U) me before. 1 
straintxl my eyes into the ilarkness below, 
aud .siw no bottom ; 1 glanced up, anil the 
srlesmi of light grew smaller aud fainter. 1 
scanneil the walls of the shafl.and marked 
only ihcii black bouud. i3ui my progre«j 
was notified by the increasing density of 
the air, which beiran to atfect mv breath- 
ing, and, as I went on, 1 had to shift my 
face fi\>m side lo side to make a little cur- 
rent. At hist my feel touched grt)uuil. 

I looked lound, as 1 jumped otT the 
straddle, and saw the furnace was out, 
wiiich put a stop to the ventilation of lue 
mine, as far as it depended on the bralti- 
ctrs, aud no air entered but by the shall. 
The stench was overpowering, and, from 
this and the silence, 1 guessetl the worst. 
It was plain that the explosion had killed 
iho hor.-;es, for not a sound came from the 
stables, which were cli>se to the shaft ; and 
what hope could there be for human be- 
in;;3 in ;i distant part of the pit V Y'on may 
be sure I ilidu't stand to make these reflec- 
tions; they lloated across me, and 
I wa.'^ working forward before they 
had got through my mind. I knew 
the old mine blindfoldeil ; but what 
with the foul smell, and what with the 
guHjin aud my shortness of breath, I was 
some niiuutes scrambling to the top ol the 
incline, keeping mv arms stretched out. us 
I went nlong^ to leel for anything in the 
way. And itVa.> lucky I did, or i should 
have dasheil mv head against some empty 
trucks and, iu" the slate 1 was in, that 
w ould have finished me. Thus 1 reached 
the tirst gallery, which you could only enter 
stt)opiiig. I pushetl open the trap and 
went on a few steps, though my Davy- 
lamp was what pitmen call " atire "—the 
tlame being all blue— and I knew that the 
atmosphere was so much gunpowder. But 
I stumbled along ; if I wasn't to save any- 
one, it didn't matter what became of my- 
self, and 1 pleased myself with the thought 
that Nelly wouKl iiear I had died in the 
attempt. Aud then, all at once it came into 
mv head what she had said about her 
brother Jack being in the pit. This gave 
mv heart such a turn that I quite stag- 
gered, and the perspiration poured from 
mv forehead like water. I rushed forward 
as if I was mad ; my toot struck something ; 
1 bent down over what seemed a corpse, 
and the gleam of the lamp fell on its lace. 
It was Jack Glover. I didn't know whether 
he was alive or dead, but I caught him in 
my arms, and with the strength of a giant, 
and the speed of a deer— hardly conscious, 
hiirdly breathing — I made a dash for the 
shaft. 

It was easier work going back, when 
you were once iu the main, or horse road ; 
for no w the shaft is before you, instead of 
behind ; and, though you wouldn't think 
it, this made a wonderful ditlerence in the 
light. Dark as pitch it still was, though 
not to a pitman's eyes, and I had found out 
that Jack breathed when I reached the 
Shalt. The disc-overy nerved me atresh, 
and kept all my senses at work without my 
seeming to know it. I only felt that there 
wimld soon be another explosion. So I 
placed Jack on the straddle, and, taking 
the cord from my Davy -lamp, tied him 
hand and foot; then pulled the signal rope, 
aud as the people above hauled the tackle, 
and 1 fted the straddle from the ground, 1 



"I havn't," I ausvi^retl my checks burn- 
ing. 

" Well, yon kn(»w best about that," con 
tinned Jack ; " but it's what 1 giie.ss, be<MU.se 
you were st-en talking with her, and she 
hud a crying hi directly after. Ami when 
she heard from me that it was you who 
brought me up from the pit she fell on my 
neck and fainted." 

" Ditln't she know it l)cforc ? " I a.sked, 
relenting. 
" No." 

"Then I'll jusl tell you all about her 
and me," 1 .said. 

1 waa a long \hm tvlliug it, but Jock set 
up as if lie was listening to a play or a 
sermon at ehaptl. 1 gave him a descrip- 
tion of Nelly that would have done for the 
Jliie idul Cin; went into all the feelings 
she had mlsed in my breast, told liim how 
I hail walchtd tor her, thought of her, 
and dnnimt of her ; aud tinally, recounted 
our last- colhKiuv. Jack never moved h 
mu.scle, and not till 1 sU>i>ped for breatli 
did he put in w«M-d. 

" Don't you think you've been a little 
fast, (^barley Y " he then said dubiously. 
" How do" you mean »" 1 answered. 
"Whv in giving uj) so. Suppose, when 
Nelly saitl she couldn t have you, y«>u had 
put your arm around her waist, and said 
she must ? " 

This view liad never struck me, and 
rather took me aback. 

" But there was her promise to you and 
her mother never to marry a pitman," I 
urgetl. 

" So there was but did you never hear 
that promises were made to be Iroke ? " 

"leant say but I hav«'," 1 mutltared 
chipping on my hat 

" Where are going * " said Jack. 
" You wait here a minute," I replied 
With that I l(H)k two Ftrides down the 
stairs into the r8ad aud hurried olf lo 
Urs. Glo\er'i* cotUige. 1 stood outside a 
minute when I opened the door, and the 
lirst thing I saw was Nelly, silling by her 
mother, "and hulking like a ghost— only 
ghosts never look pretty. She gaye me 
one look, then started up aud sprang into 
ray arni.«. My heart was so full I couldn't 
speak at lirst, but I thought I must 
do something, so I slipped my arm round 
her waist, as Jack recommended. Her 
1 lell sure of her, and of all the happi 
ness the worUl could give, and, as my 
breast swelled proudly, I began lo bear a 
little malice. 

" Ah, Nelly ! if you had only loved me ! ' 
I said. 

Nelly tightened her arms around my 
neck. ,, 

" How liappy we might have been ! 1 
continued. 

" Then we can be, Charley," she mur- 
mured. 

" How, Nelly / We can never marry, 
you know." 

The little fingers unlocked, and I felt 
Nelly falling away, but I remembered 
Jack's counsel, and held her by the waist. 
" There's your promise to your mother 
and Jack," I continued ; "how are we to 
get over that ? " 

" I forgot that," faltered Nelly, as white 
as a sheet. 

" And what do you say to it mother? I 
cried to the old lady. 

Mrs. Glover got up, and took Nellys 
hand and put it in mine. 

"That's what I say to it," she said, 
heartily ; " and 1 know Jack is of the 
same mind." 

" And this is what I say to it," I cned 
giving Nelly a kiss. 

Y'ou won't be surprised to hear that we 
were married the next week. And now I 
am the viewer of the colliery ; and as for 
Nellv, she will tell you that, though ehe 
has married a pitman aud has her roughs 
and smooth.>4, like other women, there is no 
happier woman in the kingdom. 



which goak, he gave » low rumbUn' larf, 
and relap.sl Into silence. 

" My colored fren'," I said to the negro, 
kindly, "what is it all about y" 

He said they were trying to raise money 
to seiul missioiiw-ies to the boutheru 
Stales in Ameri* to preach to the vast 
numbers of negroes recently made Iree 
tiiere. He said that they were without the 
gospel ; they were without tracts. 

I said : _ . 

"My friend, this a seria matter. I ao 
mire you for trying to help th.; race to 
which you beh>ng; and far belt (torn me 
toiiay ttuylhiutf agm carrying the g«»Hpel 
among the blK^ks of the south. Let them 
go to them by all means. But I happen lo 
lydividually know that there are some 
thoUfJands of libemtetl .blacks in lh»^ Houlh 
who are slarvin'. I <lon't blame anylxnly 
for this; bul it is a very sad.hict. Some 
are really too ill t(» work, some can't get 
the work to do, and others ate too foolish 
to see any nciessitv for workin'. I was 
down there last wiuter, and i observed 
that this cla.Ms Imd plenty of preachiu' for 
their .souls, but skurce any villles lor their 
stummux. Now, if it i« proposed t«» seiul 
flour aud l)acon along with the gospel, the 
idea is really an «'xcellent one. if. on 
t'other hand, "it is proposed to send preacli 
in' alone, all I can say is, that it's a hard 
case for the niggers. If you expect a col 
ored person to get dimply interestetl in a 
in a tract when his stummuck is empty, you 
expect too much." 

I gave the negro as much as I could af- 
ford, aud the kind heartetl lan'h)rd did the 
same. 1 said : 

" Farewell, urs' colored fren, I wish you 
well, certainly. " Y(»u are now as free as 
the eagle. Be like him aud soar. But 
don't attempt convert an Ethiopian pei.son 
while hiastummick yearns for villles. And 
you, ladies— I hope you are ready lo help 



hini, shows a degree of hardened indiffer- 
ence as revolting as the deisd itself. Even 
among assassins and murderers there Is a 
gradali(»n. On the h)west etep, where hell 
approach'is the thrcHhold of the human 
family, stands the monster, wlio invilcs 
with qniiling lips one of his brothers to 
take his supper« and who kills Inm with 
one stroke from behintl ; who then entices 
a .second brother lo come to the stable, and 
kills him at its entrance ; who then seizes 
an ax, and murders his sleeping father and 
mother and a y(uing brother of 14 years; 
who, alXer a struggle of half an hour, kills 
his sister, whilst she twnstantly criM for 
mercy ; who lh( n hurries to the bed of the 
female servant and ansa.^sinates her ; then 
washes himself, arrays himsell with all the 
leisure of perfect irunquility iu another 
suit of clothes, takes po.sst^ssioii <d' what in 
valuatile in the house; lays in their beds 
again tho.se of theassasftiiiated whoduring 
their short struggle had fallen from their 
beds on the floor ; lor he will convey to all

'• D'm't say that, Xelly. I doubtedabout

" It'p no use," she replied, "I can never 
marry a pitman. I gave the promise tn 
mother aud Jack, when we walked up the 
village at the funeral of my poor father 
and brothers, all three killed in the mine— 
our great sorrow, which 1 can never think 
of without crying.' 

And tlie tears, it is true, were running 
down her cheeks, {hough, for the minute, 
she seemed to me to be harder, thaii stone. 
And I itemed turned to. stone myself. I 
had no recollef>tion, no feelin'^ and.ni.) 
.sense, and 1 fouldn't have moved a step to 
save my life. Then it all flashe*! upon lae 
like lightning. I took a last look at Nelly, 
dropped my head ou my head on my breast, 
ami. withoirt a word more, walked out of 
the gate. 

Our village seldom looked bright no mat- 
ter how the sun shone, and now I felt as if 
the sun would nevershine again for me, so, 
ix3 my eye fell on the line of cottages, with 
the clouds hanging down from above, and 
nothing round but a waste, I thought I 
might as well be in my grave a.s continue 
to live there. Besides. 1 should always be 
meeting Nelly, perhaps lurking about her 
m(ither.^ cottage, aud making her as mis- 
erable as myself Why shouldn't I go away 
to Yorkshire, or Derbyshire, or to the dig- 
gings in Australia for that matter f The 
notion, if it was good lor nothing more, 
gave me a little spirit. It turned my 
thoughts and 1 stepped out brisker, going 
.straight home. I hadn't much to settle 
there, only to bid gno<i-by to the folks I 
lived with, and I soon came out, pack on 
back, and began my tramp. 

I slopped at the moor, and looked bftck, 
remembering I might never see the place 
again, and, di.sraal a.5 I now thought it,with 
its gaping walls and shaKencd rrK>fs encum- 
bering the blackened ground, I had been 
happy thfciow Not one of those tambling 
collages but would open its dofjr to me ; 
not one where 1 wo ildn't meet a friend. 
And there I had been born; it was the 
spot on earth that, even in the hour of bit- 
terness, 1 loved best.and I didn't turn away 
without dashing my hand over my eyes. 

1 waa walking on, when, suddenly, the 
air rang with a crash that shook the 
ground. I knew what it signified ; such 
sounds denote bat one result in the black 
country, and, throwing down my pack, I 
darted ofl^ lo the pit. with the feelings that 
animate every comer on such occasions. 

It didn't seem a minute before I came to 
the dust- heaps round the pit's mouth, bul 
some were there before me, and the off- 
men and the women were rushing up from 
the village in a stream. The smell trom 
the pit a*mi>3l knocked me down as 1 came 
up, and 1 had to get my breath a little, | 
when three or four of us crept on to the 
mouth and looked down. The explosion 
had deatroyed the cage, not leaving a slick 
of it, but ii hadn't injured the signal rope: 
hence a means ol communication remained 
for any one immediately below. As soon 
as I saw this, I set l<j work to rig a cross- 
bar, and presently had it ready. 

" Just lower me gently," I said to two 
banksmen. " I may pick up one or two, if 
there's any near." 

" You can't go down yet," cried the view- 
er. " How liiany are in the pit • " 

" Half an hour ago there was fifty," re- 
plied the timekeeper ; " hut 1 am (baJlkful 
to say they all came up but ten." 
" And they are all lost," said the v iew«i , 



mount the shall. 

It wasn't till we had got twenty feet up 
that I le!t the strain of standing i^ noth- 
ing: but. from that moment, it became just 
terrible. Aly hands seemed ready to snap; 
the ache iu my arms spread through eveiy 
muscle ; mv head spun round, and my feet 
kicked abo'ut iu an agony. I watched the 
mouth of tlie pit till my eyes swam, and 
as I re<jkoned «he space between, while my 
strength waned and my misery deepened, 
I thought I must drop before 1 reached the 
top. Then they began to hoist faster. I 
mustered all my strength; I tightened 
. my grip of the straddle, though my fingers 
Were grow ing numb ; I steadied my feet, 
and hardly trusted myself to breathe. 1 
could ste the walls of the shaft ; I could 
feel the purer air; I heard voices, and 
presently ihe tackle swung ; strong arms 
caught me round, and I was h.nded on the 
bank. 

They had Jack Glover oli the straddle 
before vou could look round, and he was 
carried' awav, while they raised my head 
and poured a little brandy in my mouth. 
1 called out for the viewer. 

" Wliat i« it, Charley Batson ? " he asked, 
bending over me. 

" Everybotly away from the pit, sir," I 
said. 

• You are right," he answered ; " It will 
come iutt minute or two." 

They got me to the top of the bank, 
when I heard a scream, and there was 
Nelly, trjing to throw herself on her 
brother Jack, but kept back by the other 
womenfolk. She never glanced at msf 
I wished then that I had stopped in the 
pit, or let myself drop from the bar, as I 
came up, and so escaped seeing her again. 
But I made up my mind that I had looked 
on her for the last time. I told my help

The following letter by Arlemas Ward 
has been published in the "Savage Club 
Papers": 

I was sitting in the bar quietly smokin' 
a frugal pipe, when two middle-aged and 
stern lookiu' females, and a young and 
pretty female entered the room. They 
were accompanied by two umbrellas and a 
negro gentleman. 

" Do you feel for the down-trodden V" 
said one of the females, a Ihin-foced and 
pharp-voieed person iu green spectacles. 

" Do I feel for it V" ansered .the lan'lord, 
in a puzzled voice ; " do I feel for it ?" 
" Yes: for the oppressed and beuited?" 
"Inasmuch as to which?" said the lan'- 
lord. , , 

"Y'ou see this man?' said the female, 
raisin' the umbrella to the negro gentle- 
man. 

" Y'es, marm, I see him " 

" Yes," said the female, risin' her voice 
to an exceedin' high pitch, " you see him, 
an' he's your brother!" 

"No; I'm darned if he is!" said the 
lan'lord, hastily retreating to his beer 
casks. . ^ , 

"And yours!" shouted the excited fe- 
male, addressin' me, " He is also your 
brother !" 

" No ; I think not, marm, " I pleasantly 
replied. "The nearest we come to that 
color in our fam'ly was the case of my 
brother Jolm. He had the janders for 
sev'ral years; but they finally left him. I 
am happy lo state that at the present time 
he hasn't a solitary jander." 

" Look at this man ! " screamed the fe- 
male. 

I looked at hiiu. He was an able bodied, 
well dressed, comfortable looking nigger. 
He looked as if he might, have three or 
four good meals a day into Jiim without a 
murmur. 

" Look at that down-trodden man ! 
cried the female. 

" Who trod on him ?" I inquired. 
" Villains ! despots I" 
" Well," said the lan'lord, " why don't 
you go to the willains about it ? Why do 
you come here telliu us negroes is our 



let go my arm., I turned towards the moor, round like a lot of lunytics \ 



Intending to pick up my pack and dragon 
—at least to the next village. 

But I could no more walk five miles 
tliau 1 coidd fly. When I came to my 
pack I sank down by it. and felt that 1 
must give up. I was so beat that, though 
there was now another explosion at the pit, 
as I had expected, and though it shook the 

? round mider me, I didn't lift my head. All 
thought of was stretching out my arms 
and legs aud lying quiet. How long 1 lay 
there I never knew. But, by degrees, I 
recovered a little strength, and rny thoughts 
look more shape, when I decid<?a to return 
lo my old lodging, and have a day's rest 
before I set out on my wanderings. 

The dav pas.scd, and the, night, and the 
next day," and I was still in bed, and good 
folks tending me like a child. My limbs, 
which had been racked with pain, now 
felt easy, and 1 was ready for a start again. 
Bul I thought there would be opposition, 
so I got up very quietly, and was putting 
on my things, when the room door 
opened, and, to my W(»nder, in came Jack 
Glover. 

"Hilloa, Charley, here wc arc ! " he 
cried, seizing my hand, and giving it a 
hearty sfiuecze. " WJm woukl have thought 
of us two kiemg alive today ? " 

" Well, Jack," I answered, "1 am glad 
for you, but 1 shouldn't have cared for 
myself" 

"How's that?" he a.sked. 
" Because I have something on my 
mind." 

" You ! " he said, laughing, and giving 
me a little push. " Here, sit down and 
have a pipe, and it will all go off like the 
smoke." • 

"I don't care if I never smoke a pipe 
»gain," I said, wivagely. 

" Notv, m tell you what it is." said 
dack, " Yd4 have been having a lifl with | sister 



ou r wuss

" Have you," said the middle-aged female 
No. 2, who was a quieter sort of person : 
" havj you no sentiment, no poetry in your 
soul, no love for the beautiful v Dost nev- 
er go into the green fields to cull the beau- 
tiful flowers?" • 

" I uotonly never dost, ' said the lau lord, 
in an angry voice, "but I'll bet you five 
pound you can't bring any man as says I 

durst.'' ... 

" The little birds," continued the female; 
"dost not love to gaze onto them?" 

" I would 1 were a bird, that I might fly 
to thou," I humorously sung, casting a 
sweet ghince at the pretty young woman. 

" Don't you look in that way at my daw- 
ter," said female No. 1, in violent voice; 
" you're old enough to Ikj her father. " 

" 'Twas an innocent look, dear madam," 
I softly said. " You behold in me an em- 
blem of innocence and purity, in fact, I 
start for Rome by the first train to mor-

The columns of late papers from Ger 
many are filled with the particulars of a 
mt>st horrible tragedy, scarcely to be par- 
alleled in criminal history. A son kills 
his father and mother, his sister and four 
brothers, and a servant, burns the house 
and bara where he slew them, and for 
fully nine months succeeds by the most 
astonishing dissimulation, iu evading all 
suspicion against himself. The massacre 
was committed in Gross Campen a large 
farm in the neighborhood of Itzehoe, in 
Holsteiu, according to the Hamburg lie- 
foivn from which we translate the follow- 
ing terrible tale : 

" The form was owned by Mr. John 
Thode, a wealthy peasant of fifty -six years 
of age, his wife Margaiet was about the 
same age, and his children, Anna, Martin, 
John, Kniers and Timm, were all over 
twenty. A fifth sou. Reimer, was only 
fourteen vcars old. Th^y were all robust, 
healthy people. Besides the family there 
was a hired girl in the house. Timm ex- 
ceptetl, all the members of the family had 
the reputation of upright, industrious, 
thrifty people. The neighbors spoke less 
favorable of Timm. He was often away 
from home, and in latter years he worked 
in a flour mill at Brummendiek. The mill 
burned down ; he returned home, but could 
never agree with his family. Old Thode, 
at the time of the catastrophe, had some 
ten thousand marks in cash, the contents 
of the savings box of the j-ounger children. 
The lightning, only a lew weeks previous 
to his death, had struck the house and the 
very chair in which the old gcDlleman sat, 
though without hurting him. The next 
neighbor, Mr. Jacob Schwartzkopf, lived 
in a house about one hundred yards dis- 
tant from Thode's dwelhng. 

" On the night of the 7th of August. 1866. 
that neighbor was awakened by the re- 
peated cry dffire and murder ! When he 
and his s<^)u lefl the house to assist their 
neighbors they found Timm lying in front 
of their window in a perfect state of in- 
sensibility. At his side lay a small box 
with some silver ware, and the above 
named stocks and a little money. They 
first carried the young man into the house, 
called the servants to attend him, and then 
ran to the burning houpe of their neigh- 
bor. All was silent at the house, and they 
thought the inmates were engaged at the 
burning barn. But there, also, they did 
not find a living soul. They then relumed 
to the dwelling, and, receiving no answer 
inside, the broke the windows out and en- 
tered a room where the father, the mother, 
the daughter and the youngest son slept. 
They found a bundle of straw on the floor, 
and the bed slowly bm-ning, and all the 
occupants of the room murdered. The 
house and barn burned down, yet the 
brave neighbor at the risk of his life 
brought the corpses of tuese four victims 
out of the house. The second of his sons 
was .discovered dead in his bed, his nead 
hanging over the edge. The bodies of tlie 
two others were found in the barn. The 
hired girl was burned to a crisp, but evi- 
dently was murdered before she was burned. 
The two boys in the barn had been killed 
with one stroke of a heavy spoke ; the 
father, the mother, the youngest son aud 
the servant by biows given by an ax 
while sleeping in their beds. The daughter, 
a girl of seventeen years, must have had 
a fearful struggle with her murderer, for 
one of her arms was cut ott, her skull was 
fractured, and she had thirty four wounds 
on her body. 

"The horrified population of the neigh- 
borhood, and with them the judici»l,.ofli- 
cera, in vain looker! for the murdcTer. 
Timm was the only surviving member of 
the family he, alone might, perhaps, knpw 
Bomething of the perpetrators. But, for 
fully two days, he laid in a state of insen- 
sibility, raving at times, and uttering in- 
coherent phrases. When he finally awoke 
he felt very sick, and complained that his 
parents did not come to see him, wonder- 
ing why he was not in his own house, but 
at his neighbors. 

" Suttlce to say that he played his part 
80 ingeniously well that he duped the mem- 
bers of the judicial committee of inquiry 
so perfectly that he was not arrested, and 
no suspicion even was entertained against 
him in their c«)uncils. The Government 
offered a reward of 1,000 thalers for the 
discovery of the assassin. Timm himself 

Eromlsed l,5tX) thalers to the discoverer, 
ut when, after eight months, not the least 
trace could he found of the murderer, the 
iuJges of intiuiry dropped the case. Timm 
In the meantime prepared himself for emi- 
gration to the United btates. He sold his 
lather's farm, and was ready to 8tarl,w hen 
the higher court of Oluckeburg ordered a 
new investigation and commenced it with 
Timm's confinement in a solitary prison. 
He at once fislt that he was lost, and on the 
third or U>urth day after hisarrest made a 
full confession. In order to come into the 
posseMlon of hlB father's estate he had 
murdered a whole family of eight persons 
in lees than two hours, and then set fire to 
the house and barn, destroying thereby, as 
he thought, all traces of his crime, w Inch 
possibly might be uatd as proof against 
him. But the barn commenced to burn 
first, whilst the fire at tlie house made b»> 
dow prog I ess that the corpses ol most of 
his victims, with the marks of bloody mur- 
der upon themi could be removed. When 
h« foresaw that rcuult he commenced lo 
play inBcnfiiblllly. so that he might hear 
what the bystanders had to say ; and ac 
cording t<> "what he heard, he expected|to

to estimate the final result ol the harvest,

A Smart Colt. 

The Elyna Demvcrat is responsible for 
the following " hefty " story : 

'Last Wednesday a colt about six or 
eiffhl weeks old, belonging to 3Ir. Phipps. 
in^lhis township, performed a fcut thai we 
venture to eay wa.? never paraiiek^ by the 
horse kind in this or any other country. 
It was witnessed by several persons, and 
is no fiction. P. A. Bish^'P' ^^l-^ ?^^*^* ^^^ 
the facts as an eye-wilnees. Mr. Phipp? 
was coming to town with the colt, lollow- 
iue his mare, and when about twenty rods 
Irom the railroad crossing at Mr. Bit-hop's 
residence, the" Sand^jsky freight train came 
thundering along at it* ut>ual t>peed. liie 
coil, greatly frightened, ran toward tlie 
crossing, but the train got there first, and 
one or two cars had passed when his Colt- 
ship arrived. Nothing daunted, he leaped 
the cattle pass at one bouud. upward* of 
twelve feel across, and ran toward the 
biizh bridge, by the side of iht train. He 
crossed the stone abutment about thirty 
feet l<uig. ran acr«)53 the_ iron-coverell 
bridge to the east abutment, which is up- 
wards cf <eveatv leet long, ana, crossing 
that sately, ran nearly to liie village before 
giving up the chase, and was found by his 
owner unharmed. To understand the 
character of Ihe feat, it must be remem- 
bered that between the cars aud the edge 
ol the abutment there is a space of only 
twentv inches, aud after crossing the 
bridge, which is much wider thou the 
abutment, how the cult managed at full 
speed to strike the narrow 5p«ce on tae 
ea>t abutment, aud run seventy feet sately, 
is ahnost a miracle The bridge and abut 
meuts are almost forty tlet high. This is 
a well-attested fad ; aud if any person 
thinks he has a smarter colt let him trot 
him out." 

Always work with N.^ttre. — This. 
sounds like Emerson : Y'ou have seen a 
carpenter on a ladder with a bnwd-axe 
chopping upward chips and slivers from a 
beam. How awkward ; at what disadvan- 
tage he works. But&eelrm outhe^round, 
di"es>ing his limber under him. Now, not 
his feeble muscles, but the force of gravity 
brings down the axe , that is to say. the 
planet itsell sidits the slick The lanner 
had much ill-temper, laziness and shirking 
to endure from his hand-sawers. until one 
day he bethought him t<^ put his «iw-mill 
on" the txlge of a waterfall ; and the river 
never tires of turning his wheel; the river 
is good-natured aud uever hints an objec- 
tion . . I admire still moie the skill which, 
on the sea shove, makes the tides drive the 
wheels and grind the corn, and whidi thus 
entiages the assistauc* of the moon like a 
hired baud, to grind, and wind, and pump, 
and saw. and split stoue. and roll iron. 
Now that is the wlaJom of a mau,iu everv- 
instance of hia labor, to hitch his wagon 
to a star, and sec his chore done by the 
irods themselves. . Wc cannot bring the 
heaveulv powers to "p, but. if we only 
choose our jobs in liirecnons in which they 
travel thev wi^i uuUeriake them wjjh the 
jjreatest pleasure. It is a peremptory rule 
with \\\i.n\tii.tiJhey ncur >jo <vf or thar 
roni We are dapper little Iwybotiios. 
and run this way and that way superser- 
viecably ; but thev swkcrve never from their 
foieordaiued p.aths, neither the sun, nor 
the moou. nor a bubble of «ir, uoi a mote 
of dust.

Many an old farmer iu Blandford tells

that has never betbre found its way into

■were gathered for some public occasion, 
and entere'l the tavern, where were assem- 
bled between thirty and forty of the prm- 
cipal men (»f the community. To each one 
he was presented by narne, and in thobe 
ante-constabulary times invited all to 
drink with nim, which they did. After 
half an hour's general conversation, in 
which all took part with perfect good will, 
the great man in leaving passed around the 
whole company, shook each by the hand, 
and without stammer or hesitancy called 
each by his name, thus biudiut; them all by 
that delicate compliment to life-long alle- 
giance, and at the .same lime performing a 
feat of memory almost without parallel.

— The cN.)rrespondent of the New York 
TH)net<, with the Senatorial excursion par- 
ty on their recent trip over the Union 
Pacific Railroad, records the following 
curious incident, illustrative of the odd 
contrasts of the frontier : SluHtting (it 
antdoiio from a cttr window whil-e trnv- 
eling at t/w rati' of fifty mile^ nn hour ! 
That's the entertainment to which 
the Senatorial excursionists were invited, 
and which iney have been enjoy iug yester- 
day and to-day. " Tell it to the marines," 
ninety-nine out of every hundred readers 
of the Tines may exclaim, but it is fact 
nevertheless. I have myself enjoyed the 
novel sensation of hearing the sharp crack 
of the rifle, of seeing the antelope start as 
the bullet tore up the sod and made the 
dust fly near him ; and what is more to the 
purpose, I have pulled the trigger of a 
"Henry" repeater, which sent a ball to 
startle an antelope as it was quietiV feeding 
about half a mile from the railway track.

the room, returned in about thirty minutes 
aud found the child dead. As she entered 
the room a cat jumped oil the cradle. The

while the family were at dinner, caught a

hand, and in this array enteretl the fortress, 
where the barbers proceeded at once to 
strip the bearded party *of their hirsute 
adornment^, and sent them out clean 
shaved. It appeared that, at the bombard- 
ment of Belgrade, in lifO,i, these Servians 
had vowed never to let a razor touch their 
faces until they could do so in the fortress 
itself, on the day which the Turkisn troops 
abandoned it, and they completed their 
vow,

-Dennis Colgan, draw tender at the 
East Bridgeport (Conn.) draw-bridge, per- 
formed a heroic act on Fridav, Juno Slst, 
by which a frightful accidenl was prevent- 
ed. The draw was al)out fifleen feet from 
its place when the train came in sight, 
and was swung into its position with all 
possible speed. But as the track strikes 
the draw at a strong curve ou the west 



side, the train would inevitably force it 
open unless it was locked, Colgan instant- 
ly ran across the bridge in front of the ad- 
vaucing train, dropped in front of the 
engine, locked the draw with about an 
inch of the bar, and slid to the platform 
below. So narrow was his escanc, that all 
thought he had been crushed to death 
beueath the wheels, until he emerged in 
the rear of the passing train,

ofllce of the railway station, tendered a 
£10 note in payment. Before giving the

— The Duke of Nassau could never con- 
sole himself for the narrowness of his do- 
minions, which was a perpetual source of 
luu to the Prussian papers. They one day 
declareil that he, having exiled a courtier, 
stood ou his palace's terrace to sec the or- 
der executed ; the next day the Prussian 
newspapers would publish a pseudo-decree 
forbidding all faithful subjects from dis- 
charging muiiiketsor pistols in a horizontal 
line in order ti> avoid violating the fron- 
tiers of neighboring States; U> their jokes 
upon hi.¥deini-fluvial navy (he owned <udy 
half a river) there was no end. Tlie loud- 
er Prussia laughed the more melancholic 
the Duke became. His courtiers trlcil their 
best to raise his spirits ; the census returns 
were cxaggerattnl, the births were in- 
creased, deaths were diminished, maps 
made which represented hamlets which 
ceased to exist in the days of Gennanicus 
as flourishing cities — all in vain. One day 
a railroad company asked ]>erinission to 
build their road across his duchy ; he 
granttnl permission on conditi(ui that the 
road nhould pursue a zig-zag line so as to 
double or triple the distance run and force 
the locomotives t«> travel slowly, so that 
passengers should think the Duchy of Nas-

— In military parlance a tattoo is a night 
drum beat. The tattoo, however, as re- 
cently iatrodnced into the British Navy, 
beats drum-beating hollow. Some gay and 
festive midshipmen are said Uy have seized 



a mes-mate, lashed him to a gun, and theu 
cut on his nose the broad arrow of her Ma- 
jesty. The outrage was aggravated by 
rubbing iu gui powder, thus leaking the 
])ictorial device a permanent nasal orna- 
ment. iSsHoon as th(; matter was made 
known at the Admiralty, Hk; perpetnitors 
were dismisfleil from the service. Having 
thus inflicted punishment without trial, 
two naval ('aiUaliis wen; sent to investi 
gate th( matter. Meantime contradictions 
«in(l Jtistifications c-ame jiotiriug in. No 
gunpowder was rubbed in ; the broad ar- 
row was merely pricked iu ccticular fres<.-o, 
not painted at all. and wouUl heal without 
a Hcar, " leaving no scar behind." Besides 
the victim was " williu" and ratlier liked 
il. Moreover, uoSe tattooing isatimehon-

reinforced by that of steam, while the 
steam p«^wer gaius in application tlie ad- 
vantage of the horse's intelligence, so that 
both work together, and are manageel as

forward, his traction applies the steam; 
when he is pulleil up, his backward action 
shuts it ofl', and if vigorously applied, re- 
verses the engine, which backs as he backs, 
stops backing as lie stops, and again starts 
forward as he starts.

out reckoning the short crossings of rivers, 
the total length of submarine cables laid 
during the sixteen and a half years between 
June, 1850 and the end of 18GC, amounted 
to l'J,l)23 miles, with a length of conduct- 
ing wire (many of the cables comprising 
from three to six conduct<»r8) of 25,563 
miles. One-half ot this, including the At-

— The Master of the Mint in London 
has obtained a message from the stars. It 
was conveyed in a piece of meteoric iron. 
When healed and tested with Sprengel's 
aspirator, this iron gave oft' three times its 
volume of hydrogen. And since malleable 
iron can only be made to lake up about 
one-half its volume of hydrogen, Mr. Gra- 
ham urderstood the message to be th.itthe 
iron had come from a very dense atmos- 
phere of hydrogen gas, such as would not 
be found within the limits of the solar sys- 
tem. Spectrum analysis has already shown 
that liydrogon is a prominent coustituent 
in many of the stars, and Mr. Graham's 
experiment shows how it can be conveyed 
all those couniless millions of miles to Uiis 
earlh. 

— In a recent lecture upcm Africa, deliv- 
ered by Monsieur Du Chaillu before the 
Travelers' Club, in New York, the lectur- 
er stated that many of the tribes of Equa- 
torial Africa esteemed the flesh of the 
gorilla a great delicacy*. In his Explora- 
tions he had suffered more from hunger 
than from any other cause. He generally 
took a monkeV along with him, and would 
first let the mtmkey taste the berries he 
found by the way-side, and if he would eat 
them he considered them safe food for him- 
self Thus he had lived for days and 
weeks, and looking at his monkey compan- 
ion, w ould exclaim : "Am not I a man and 
a brother?" Sometimes the monkey's 
taste in berries diflered from his own ; but 
he had to put up with what he could get, 
and eat what the monkey set before him. 
He had also not unfrequently been com- 
pelled to eat the monkey himself, and 
found him equal to the finest venison.

Frightful Coal Mike Disaster rx 
Enoland.- A fearful accident, which re- 
sulted in the immediate death of ten men 
and lads, occurred at Washington colliery, 
on the \Veir, in England, May 31 Sixteen 
men and lads had been barred up in the 
Maudlin seam, and were prevented gelling 
up with the men who came out of the pit 
m the afternoon. About G o'cliKk the fall 
having beeu cleared away, the men and 
lads having been sent to "the foot of the 
shaft to go to bank, and ten of them were 
in a cage of two decks, between 7 and 8 
o'clock, and were drawn up the shaft by 
the engine. In.stead of stopping his en- 
gine when the Ciise got to bank, Tudor, 
the engineman, had let it go on, and the 
result was, the ten poor creatures were run 
up to the pulleys in the cage. Upon pass- 
ing the bfink the men shouted with all 
their strength, but no notice was taken of 
them, and as soon as the cage struck the 
chocks near the pulleys or wheels, which 
It did with considerable force, the wire 
rope broke, and the whole of the men in 
the cage were precipitated with il down 
the shaft, to the sump, a de])tli of two hun- 
dred and lift y yards, and it is needless lo 
Siiy that thev were killed on tlic spot. The 
cage crashed from side to side as it was pre- 
cipitated down the fearful chasm, pitclied 
the men out, smashed through the bunt- 
ing, and fell into the sump. Immediately 
afier the occurrence the brakeinan disap- 
peared, but he was apprehended during 
the night, aud was brought before the 
Gat«Rhead magistrates on Saturday aud re- 
manded. The bodies of the men were got 
out of the pit on the following day.

him, and felt his hat shake. He turned 
and saw a man with a revolver iu his hand, 
and took ofl' his hat and found a fresh bul- 
let hole in it 

" Did you shoot at me ?" asked the Ger- 
man, 

" Yes," replied the other parly, " that,s 
my h(»rse ; il was stolen from me recently." 

"" You must, be mislaKen," said the Ger- 
man ; " I have owned the hor.se for three 
years." 

" Well," said the other, " when I come 
to look at him, I believe 1 am mistaken. 
Excuse me, sir ; won't you take a drink!' 



The custom of working horses imme- 
diately after being fed, and especially 
when long intervals elapse between Jiours 
of feeding, weakens thij digsslive organs 
and predisposes tlietn to attacks of colic. 
Very cold water given when the horse's 
boJy is heated, aud a sudden stoppage of 
perspirati(m, are also (xciting causes of 
this disorder.

To Preserve Fur.'; anu Woolens 
FROM Moths. — An old housek'^eper says : 
ro preserve the:?e articles with entire 
safety, shake them thoroughly, in ordt^ 
that any moth already in them may be dis- 
lodged ; then place theti in close cotton or 
linen bags, aud tie them as lightly as pos- 
sible to exclude the miller, and there will 
be no danger of daiiage from moth. 
There need be no special place to hang 
the bag in. Wardrobe, closet, garn-t, or 
wherever you please, is all the .same. Old 
newspapers, entirely without fractures, 
will answer just as well in which to wrap 
up furs and woolens, but they must be so 
pasted together as to leave no place for 
the entrance of the millers. 

The Country OenUcman says many 
otherwise gofid apple o/cbards are allowed 
lo become defaced, as ■well as seriously in- 
jured, by permitting a i rofusi(m of suckers 
U) grow at the baseof the trunks. Attempts 
are sometimes made to get rid of theni by 
cutting theru ofl" down by the sorfaae ot 
the ground, and leaving considcral^le por- 
tions below iri the for;n of shoit stumps. 
These sprout again, and they soon become 
jiS bad as ever. A better way is to wait 
until they are in leaf, ut which time they 
are htosened more readily, and takjijiia^ch 
sprout separately in lh<' hands, alid f)nK!irHf 
a thick boot upon it neir the tree, they are 
quickly separatt'el. If done at this time of 
the year thej' will not be likely lo sprwit 
again. 

CANNiNa FrI'IT. — As tlie season of-fmit 
is just commencing,' anythiifg that wnflen- 
abitt it to be successfully ctuined at a small 
expense, will veiy mu:h prolong the sea- 
son. Only those who have tried it know 
the satista'ction derived from eating a dish 
of strawberries or pea ;hes iu mid-winter 
as fresh as when gathc red. The annexed 
method of canning fruit was furnished at - 
the New Y'ork Farmer«'clubby Mr§.Pow- 
eos, of Oswego county, New York : 

I will suppose your fruit and glass cans 
all ready. 1 prefer can? with glass covers. 
I scald the fruit iu a large tin pan with 
juice or water to cp^'er it. Put a half a 
tea cup of cold water into every can, and 
till up with hot w atcr ; put the covers and 
rubbers also into hot \rater. Now empty 
the can and till up with htt fruit, aud then 
another. 

Let them stand open till the hand can be 
held upon them withou l burning. As soon 
as tilled cut writing paper the size of the 
can, oue for each, aud .vhen cool, slip one 
over the fruit entirely, and fill up tl^ can 
on the top of the pape;' with boiling juice, 
and seal at once. Ladies, try this way, the 
fruit will never mould md keep any lime 
if you don't cat it. Tlie paper keeps the 
fruit from rising to Iht top of the liquid. 
There is no use of setting cans into water 
to heat them, or of pul'.ingthem in quilted 
bags, il is too troublesc^me. I let the fruit 
siirink, and then fill up to the cover as close 
as possible. Ladies must be governed by 
their owu common sense. Men attempt to 
give directions, but thtir wives havetoteU 
them, and they are likely to foi^et,

NVUcn Mr. Lowo scptirutrd hiiiisiiflroiii 
tin- rest of his partv upon the l{f form Mil 
of lii^l year, ami im-urri"! from tln-m the 
rt'proach of hfin>j " im[ir:i<tir;»l>ii'antliliin 
iT^Tous," a "loador "writer in ii (.ertaiii 
pciinv paper slioiiuilist»l the hoitoiiiltic 
member, with greater wit than courtesy, 
as an irreclaimable " rogue elephant." 0( 
the tuanv that chuckled over that meta- 
phor, only a very tew were coijni?ant of 
its meaning, and perhaps, to make the joke 
moro widely uudeislooil. Sir Em-rson 
Tennenl has"puf^lislif<^l themouograpli now 
lyini; before us.* In his late adinirable ac- 
count of Ceylon, there wa.s so much alwmt 
the elephant, that we had thought our- 
selves fidly acquainted with liim, from 
trunk to tail ; but the prc-senthtlle volume 
shows us that, like a thrifty ci>ok, who 
d(K'3 not lavish all his riche>t m>iterial.s on 
a single dish, our author res^-rved many 
det.'ulj- respecting the 'hu-e e,-\rlh yhaking 
beast," to tlie gitititicatiou of all lovers of 
natural history. 

It is true, that exhaustive and Rcientifir 
narratives of this sort dcinift soniething 
Iron, the jiopular cstituatton ot it.s sub- 
ject, just as hi.sloiies written by dispiis- 
sionate critics olleiid the general belief in 
hcrws. We confess it is a shock to our 
feelings to Utirn that an elephant is not so 
very large aft<!r all, the Ceylon species sel- 
dom exceeding liine teet ; and it is a terri- 

blu blow to bo t.dd th-it Ihi n: no.ver WiUS 

such a thiug a^'. a while elephant. His not 
only us rarely to be f;een as ;i black swan 
'that we could have toler.iled, from it.s 
earlv ass<K'iatioas connected with the jjatin 
g'rainmar), but it is not to l)C seen at all. 
Wliiit liiis been taken for one lias been 
merely au elephant who is an Al!»ino. 
"The tint is little else than a flesh color, 
rfudereil somewhat more conspicuous by 
the blanching of the skin, uiid tiie light- 
ness ot the colorless hairs with which it is 
spurselv covered." Moreover (this is a 
most p'linful lad lo one like the present 
writer, whose youth has delighted in a jtic 
ture of elephants tossing .a '.v<mnded tiger 
trom one to the other after tlii! manner of 
a shutllcci>ck), tsir Emerson calmly as-sures 
us that the tusk of an elephant i.i not an 
otfensive Aveapon. The chief n luincc of 
the elephant lor dcfeube is on its prodigious 
weight, the pres.sure of it^. T-el being sulti- 
clent to crush any minor a.sssul lul, after 
lM;ing prf)Stratetl by means of its trunk. 
" In using its feet for this j)Uipo?e, it de- 
rives a wonderful facility lioiu the pecu- 
liar formation of the knee joint in Hie 
hind-leg, which, enabling it to svvijig the 
irnid-feet lf)rwurd disc to the ground, as 
sistA It to toss the binly alternately from 
foot to foot until deprived of life. 

"A sport.sman who had partially iiniler- 
gone this op<'rntion— having been seized by 
a wounded elephant, but escaped Irom its 
fury— described to me his futlerings as he 
was thing back and forward between the 
hinda.id fore feet <d" the animal, which in- 
ertectually attempted to trample him at 
each conc'-s.^ion, and abandoiieU huu with 
out inflicting acrious injury. 

" Knox, in describing the execution of 
criminHis by the state elepl^ants of the Ibr- 
nier kings of Kandy, stiys, 'they will run 
their teeth (tu^kF) through the binly, and 
"hen tear it in pieces, and throw ii limb 
.'rom limb ; ' but a Kandyan cliict, who was 
witn«.'ss to these scenes, tissuretl nn that tlie 
elephant never once applicl il.s tiRiks, but, 
placing its fo<jt on the prostrntw victim, 
l*luckf;d oil his limbs in .succession bv a 
.^udden movement of tlie trunk." W'hat 
doubtle.^.s materially inJluencc.-* Sir Kincr- 
.son Tennent's view regarding the tusk 
fpie.stion is, that in Ceylon the elephants 
very rarely weai them — tho-.c tlialdo l^-ing 
called " tu.skerp," from tbeir singiil.-trity. 
The only use these latter, when in a wild 
state, put them to is to split up the juicy 
.shaft of the plantain, which tlic tuskle.s.s 
elephant cru.shcs under fo«»t, tliercby soil 
ing it, and vva-sting its moi.sturc. Bui in 
captivity and after training, a new use is 
found for the tusks in moving slone.s, pil 
ing timber, and carrying heavy burdi us. 
The following example of th« la.->t specitjed 
operation is surely deserving of a high 
place among the Anecdotts of Instinct : 

" One evening, whil.st riding in the vi- 
cinity of Kandy, towards llie scene of the 
miLHsacre of Major J>avi»''s party in 1M0;J, 
my horse evinced Hf>ine cxcit<inent at a 
hois<; which approached us in the thi(;k 
junjfle, and which consi.sted of a repetition 
ot the ejaculation Urmjtk .' urm]'h ! in a 
lioarse and dis.sati.stied tone. A turn in 
the forest explained the mystery by bring 
ing nie face to lace with a lame eleplmnt, 
unaccompanied by any attendant. Me wa.s 
laboring painfully to carry a lieavy beam 
of timber, which he baUiic^d acrosH Jii,s 
tusks ; but the pathway Iteing narrow, he 
was force<l tobeml his liead lo one .side, to 
permit the load to pass endways ; and tlie 
exertion and this inconvenience c.ombim'*! 
led him to utter the disaatistiid soands 
which disturlxnl the composure of my 
horse. On seeing us halt, the clepliant 
rai.sed his head, recf>nnoitred us for a mo- 
ment, then thing down tlie timber, and 
voluntarily forced himself backward 
among the hrushwt»od, so as lo leave a pass 
age, f)f which he expected as to avail our- 
selves. My liorse hesitated : the elcithant 
ol>serve<I it, and impaiiently thrust him- 
self still deeper into the jungle, rejicating 
his cry of Unnyh! but in a voice evidtnl 



Iv meant to encourage U3 to advance. Slill 
the horse trembled ; and an.\iou3 to ob- 
serve the instinct of the two sagacious an- 
imals, I laid the rein upon its neck and tor- 
bou' any inU-rferenco ; again the elephant 
of his own accord wedged himselt Uirther 
in amongst the trees, and manifested some 
impatience that we did not pas.>i htm. At 
length the horse moved torward ; and when 
weVere tairly past the elephant I lo<»kcHl 
back and saw the wise creature slooj) and 
lake 'up its unwieldy burden, trim and bal- 
ance it on its tus^ks, and resume Us route as 
beliire, h«»arsely suorling ils Uiscoutcutetl 
remonstranc*'.' 

Considering that Uiisclepliant wi\3 with 
out a human attendant, the .sagacity 
eviiuinl oil the unforseen cuurgeiicicji is 
most reniarkabU-; but inihid thi- word in 
stinel hardly describes the intelligence ol 
Ihis wondeiiul creature. Dr. Uookrr, in 
describing the ascent of the Himalaya, 
savs that'ihe natives in making their paths 
despi.se all zig/Ags, ami run .straight up Ihe 
.sleepchl hills, wherciis the elephants' |Kith 
winds w ilh judgment, and is an cMH-Uent 
specimen of engineering. In their perioil- 
ical migrations in search y^'i water, they 
will keep aloim the Iwck bone of a chain 
of hills, avoiding steep gradient-s, "and 
one curious obicrvaliiui was not lost upon 
the gi>vernment surveyors of (Jeyhm— that 
in crossing valleys, from ridge tii ridge, 
through forests rc» dense as to obstruct a 
distant view, the elephants invariably se- 
lect the line of inarch which communi- 
cates most judiciously witli the opi»osite 
point, by nieansof the safest ford." When 
traiiud, they apj>ear on ail occa-sions U> 
comitrehend the purpi>se aud object tliat 
iliey are cxpecUil to iiromote, ami volun- 
larilv e.wcute a variety of details without 
any guidance whatever from thoir keeper ; 
but even when not traincti, they wimld de 
serve the sutl'nige if only i>ti intclleitual 
.liialitication were letiuired of it. 

A hJtnghale.se gentleman gavi' Sir Einer 
sonTennent the subjoined account of his 
own personal experience of this imitter, 
whh'h must have been almo.st as exciting 
as conclusive. He was in a forest with 
other natives and an Englishman, and was 
attacked by a certain elei>hant,which,liav 
ing di>uc inucli daiuago to 'his crops, they 
had come out to kill. "The P'nglishman 
manau'cd to climb a tree, ami the rest of 
my companions did the s»une ; as for my 
self 1 could not, although I made one or 
two .superhuman ellorUs. lint there was 
no time to 1h? lost. The elephant was run 
niiiir at me with his trunk bent down in a 
curve towards the groumi At this critical 
moment, Mr. Lindsay hclil out his foot to 
me, with the help of which, and then ot 
the bram lies of the tree, whuh were three 
or four teet above my head, I managed to 
seiMinble Up to a branch. Th«' elephant 
came directly to the tree, and attempted to 
force It down, which ho could not. He fust 
coileil his trunk round the stem, and pulle<l 
it with all his might, but with no et\ect. 
He then applied his head to the tree, and 
jmshed for several mintite.«, but with no 
better succvss. He then trampled with his 
iect all the projecting ro*>ts, moving, as he 
did so, several times round and ronml the 
tree. Lastly, failing in all this, and .seeing 
a pile of timber, which I had lately cut, at 
a short distiince from us, he removed it all 
(thirty six pieces), one at a time, to the 
riKit of the tree, ami piled them up in a 
n-gular business-like manner ; then placed 
hi.s liind feel on this pile, he mised the 
fore part of his Ixxly, and rcache<l out his 
trunk; but .still hccouhi not touch us, Jis 
we were too far above him. Tlie English- 
man then tiretl, antl the ball took elVect 
somewhere on the eh phant's head, but did 
not kill him. It n\aele him only the more 
furious, riie ne.xt .shot, however, levelled 
him to tlie ground." Nor is the intelligence 
of the elephant, like that of many other 
animals, merely selfish, but admits i^f plot 
and i)!an for the benefit of the whole herd 
to whieh it belongs. One member of the 
ln-rd— usually the largest, aud a tusker, if 
there be one among them, but tliere is no 
Salii' law ; a female, if of superior energy, 
is as readily olieyed as a male — is chosen 
commander, and, by common consent, im- 
pliiitly oljeyed. The rest not only obey, 
but are so devoted to him, that when driv- 
en to extremity, they place him in the cen- 
ter — form .square, with the general within 
it— and crowd so eagerly in Inmt of him, 
that the sportsmen, if Iwiit upon his partic- 
ular destruction, have to shoot a number 
they might otherwise have spared. Vi- 
dette duty, tiw, is as thoroughly iinder- 
sttxKl l»y Ibem as !>>' any veteran in her 
.Majesty's service. 

The elephant manages to sink what are 
called "elephant wells" for his ownu.se, 
by scooping out the sjinil to the depth of 
i'liir or hve feet, and leaving a hollow for 
the percolation of ihe spring. Also, as 
his weight would force in the side if left 
perpetnliciilar, tmc ai»i>roach is always 
formed with such a gradient that he can 
reach the water with his trunk without 
dislurbing the Murrounding sjind. Water 
is extremely neccs.sary t>)r him, and his 
.stonuudi is so contrived that he f;arries 
about wilh him a large reservoir of it from 
which lie can draw with his trunk, as from 
a cistern and squirt over his back and sides. 
When bathing, he lies on his side, press- 
ing his huge he.ad under water, with f)nly 
the tip of his trunk protrudeil, whereby 
to breathe ; and crossing rivers, he prefers, 
notwith.standing 1 uoyam y, to sutimerge 
himselt wholly, wilh the !<amc exception, 
.So that strangers may easily take him for 
a water snake, and must be much astfin 
isheil, if not alarmed at discovering his 
error. From the earliest times, this huge 
beast has been a prolific subject of error 
anuing humankind. For many ages it was 
beli<:rerl that be <lid not iK-ml his knees, 
and that when he fell, he <;ould not get up 
again. Even Shakespeare writes (in Troi 
lux miff VrixxuUi) : 

Thf elephant hath joints ; 1)01 none for rourtcs> : 
Ilis Ivps aro for ntcessity, not flexure ; 

And Donne follows suit with : 
Illinsflf he up-proiis, on hiniseir relies ; 
Still sleepint; stands. 

The popular notion of the m*Hle of hi.s 
capture was, that the sportsman, having 
marked his favorite tree for sleeping 
against, would saw it almost a.siindcr, .so 
that the next lime the beast came to lean 
against it, it gave way and r(;ndcr«l him 
an easy prey. That ridiculous idea lieing 
thus far plausible, tliat the structure of an 
elephant s legs is ma.'-.sivc, that reclining 
.scarcely adds to his enjoyment, .so that in 
(•aptivity he will (or months together, take 
sleep without lying <lowii ; moreover ho 
delights in rubbing himself against the 
trees. 

Another fable, much more to the ani- 
mal's discredit, has 8urvive<l to our own 
time — that he is dangeious and inimical to 
man. Now, in Ceylon, from whi<;h tlie 
export of elephants to India has Imjcu go- 
ing on from the first Tunic War, they 
alM)und both on the plains and in the for- 
ests — wherever tliere are f<»«<l and shade, 
vegetation and water, even to the environs 
of the most populous native towns; and 
yet, during five years, only Hixlecn jxjrsons 
are iccorde«l in the roroners' impiest lo 
liavc l)een killed by elephants during nix 
years! The only exce|)ttoii to the general 
harmlessness of this gigantic creature is 
found in what are rralled Itogue Klepliants 
—such as the Singliale-s*.; gentleman found 
.so ready to climb a tree. " It is ticlieved 
by the natives that tJiia«{ arc cither indi- 
viduals who, by iKtcideut, have lost their 
former asso<-i«te«, antl b«'<*ome inoro,sc and 
savage from rage and solitude, or else, that 
being naturally vicioii.i, they have N^rome 
ilaring from the yielding hahitfl of their 
milder companion.s, aud eventually s«'par 
ate<| themselves from the rest of the herd, 
which hail refus<!d to a.swM:laU' with them. 
Another conjecture is, tliat being almost 
universally males, llnr death or capture t»f 
particular females may have deta<die«I 
th«;in from their former companions in 
search of fresli alliances. It is also lielievcd 
that a tame ele|>hant escaping from captiv- 
ity, unable to rejoin its former herd, and 



• Uognc ' from necessity." Thew! UogUi>« 
spend their nighta in marauding and de 
atroyiiig plantathms; prowl aliout the 
by-niads and jungle pal h.s, demanding not 
your money, but your life ; and thus, like 
uMuraut itujdx among ourselves bring their 
whole family into much discredit. Hut it 
is unfair to judge the race by such speci- 
mens, tho fact Of wh<»se being outcasts, 
ought to recomnund the community that 
disowns them. Nothing can be gentler 
or m(»re peaceful than the aspect bf the 
ordin.iry herds as thiy browse up»)n the 
plants aud trws or fan themselves grace- 
fully wilh a leafy branch, while their 
young run playfully among tluin. 

Their tniuipeling, indeed, isnot mii.sieal ; 
but it isiapableof iniHhtlatituiand variety. 
Tin- most remarkable sound tlu-y emit is, 
however, a 'ow, supprcs.so(l twitter of the 
lips, called by the hunters "prut," where 
by the sagacious creatures coinmunictite to 
one anollier that llicre is something wrong. 
At night, Ibeie is another .sort of a warn 
ing resembling the hollow boimi of an 
eiupty tun when struck by a woinlen mal- 
let. This is caused by the beating «ui tlie 
ground of the tlat side of the trunk, which 
is instantly succetileil by the raising of 
that member, and pointing it in the direc 
tion whence the alarm proceeds--" for all 
the world like a Christian." Hut on the 
whole, the elephant is not a noisy animal, 
ami for so ma.ssive a creature, it is extraor- 
dinary how ntiiselessly and stealthily he 
will lane himself otf when danger threat- 
ens. "At first, when suddenly disturbed 
in a jungle, it will bur.st away with a rush 
that seems tt> bear down all before it ; but 
the noi.se sinks into absolute stillness so 
suddenly, that a novice might w«ll be led 
to suppose that the fugitive had only halt- 
cil within a few yanls of him, when further 
si'arch will diM-lo.sc that it hius stolen silent- 
ly away, in iking scarcely a .sound in its 
«'scap<'; and, sti-aiig«r 8lill. leaving 
the lohage almost undisturbed by it.s pas 

.sage. 

To descrilie the the taming process - 
wonderfully like that, by the by, uscfl by 
Harey Idr lior.s^s— w»>uld be tuily to reta- 
pitiilate much that has already been staled 
by imr author in his Veylou : but is well 
tomention that Sir Emerson Tennent comes 
to the c<mclusion thai elephant labor does 
not pay. Notwithstanding Ihe great 
stengthand intelligence of the creature, 
yet it is liable to disea.se, euotiiuius C4>n , 
sumption of provender, and necessity 
for human guidance and attendance, more 
than c<iunterbala!ice those .advantages. 
Upon the ground of economy, the govern- 
ment, stud of eK'phants in Ceylon has con 
.sctpieiilly been much diminished.' About 
the duration ol life of this quadruped, 
there is still much doubt ; the Singhale.st^ 
believing it to extend to tw<i or three cvn 
turies, and the FiUroin-ans ascriliing to tite 
elei»hanl, as to a man, a span of seventy 
vears. Hut it is a curious fa<-l that no body 
of a dead elephant that lias died a natural 
death is ever si'cn in the forests. The ny 
lives explain this by ascribing to tlie.si- 
creatures the habit of .Repulturo, and in 
addition entertain the curious lielief, that 
somewhere in the forests of Anarajapoora, 
though as yet undiscovered by man, there 
is a spot where all tfw cUpfKitilM couu todii\ 
upon linding themselves disposed Ikat 

way. 

If they don't die, they atftH events, know 
how to pretend to do so. Mr. Cripi>s re- 
lates that upon one being kd captive from 
the corral, as usual between two tame ones, 
the following occurrence look place : "It 
had already proctseded far U|)«m his desti- 
natiim, when, night closing in, aud the 
torches being lighted it refused to go on, 
and finally .satik to Ihe ground api»arently 
lifeless. Mr. Cripps ordered the liisteningR 
to lie removed from its legs, and when all 
attempts to raise it had failed, m convinccnl 
was he that it was tlead, that he ordered 
the ropes lo l>c taken ofl" and the carcass 
abandcmed. While this was being done, 
he and a gentleman by whom he was ac- 
comiianied leaned against lheb<idy to rest 
They had scarcely taken their departure, 
and priHX'fHh d a lew yards, when, to their 
asionishiiient, the elephant ro.se with the 
utmost alacrity, aud lied towards the jun- 
gle, screaming at the top of its voice, ifp

If a gentleman Iriend, Lowell will greet 
you with the remarjF, "I can give you A 
pipe or a cigar, which do you prefer. 
For him.selt, Lowell generally prefers a 
pipe. He is a gn^at smoker, *nd hlfl nu er- 
.schaum "colors biiiutifully." 

This place, which is probably worth 
■t.'iO.OOti, was Lowell's birth i-lacc, and 
where he huM all his li|uresuled,thougli he 
has traveh il «!OUsiderable in Itucign lan<ls. 
He gnuluatcd from Havvai J College Ht till- 
age of uinetiH,'n, ami then studied law, and 
wasadmilUHl to lhd"bar the following y»;!ir. 
He has never practised his profe.s.sion 
iiuuh, however, pnfcrring the flowery 
walks of lilemliwc- flowery to such as he, 
wh.tse daily bn ad does not depend uiion 
his daily toil. He h.is never realized much 
from his books, which have not hail large 
sales. From his I'role.stiorship of HeJles- 
Lettresand Winh rn Laiigiiagea in Harvard 
he receives l|.'l,tM)(l a year. In view of the 
extent of his reputation, it is quite a sur- 
prise to find how little he has really writ 
ten. "Why don t you write more*" a 
friend asked him on one oc(aision. " I am 
too lazy," said I.cowell, " 1 don't c«ie much 
for fame— I wish Iiared mcne." 

Lowell started a inagwzine some tweiity- 
Uvc years ago, in Hoslon, calhnl The Pio 
neer, whii h endtra<tHl aiming its contribu- 
tors such men as Hawthorne, Foe, Neil, 
etc.; Imt it " went dead ' with the third 
number. It was too gotxl for tht^ market. 
Fiitnam's Monthly, while alive, had fre- 
(|Ueiit colli ribiitions from Lowell. Hi; now 
confines himself to the pages of the Allan 
lie and the North American Keview. Oa 
teiisibly he is au eilitor of the ll6view, but 
real I v he is not ; he wYites articles for il, 
but not cdiUtrials. lie is one of the .slow- 
est oi our literary w orkcrs. It usually takes 
him three months lo get an article oil the 
stocks. 

He i.s womlcifnlly set iu hisopiiiHins on 
almost every topic,' and if the rest of the 
world chooses to disagree with him the 
n;3t of the wvuid is wrong. Not that In- is 
jjlibeial ; liis mind is large and comprehen- 
sive, but hiij inherited ptejiidices are very 
stnmg. He thinks, amoiiig other things, 
that Abraham Lincoln was the great man 
of the present ciiilury, Heluisbeen known 
to say of some of Lintniln's writings— his 
mes-sage.---, to wit -for H-ise and powerful 
logic never were siirpassi'd. 

IjOwcII takes life very easily, and has the 
most exuberaiil heallli. He is now about 
forty SIX years oil, but looks younger. He 
is not iiver fond of the goo^l tliiags of the 
table, but always has a goinl appetite and 
a gooil digestion, lie has been twice mar- 
ried ; his first wile vas a lady of rare ac 
complishmfnts and great beauty, who died 
f-onie twelve year.5 Uijo. The second wife 
is still living, ilr. iiowell has a daughter 
sixteen or .seventeen years of age. 

Of his humorous writings Lowell always 
speaks lightly. He *,Qok up the Bigclow 
papers as a Irene hanWr»eapou of Siitirc for 
jiolitical purposes, without any idea thai 
it w«uild be, in the iitinds of the people, thr 
thing that would fiisten in their minds the 
name of James UnssiU Ijowell. He says 
the ren-siin he has deeidod to write, no more 
IJigeh>w is siinjily Ucause he is lirctl of 
him. 



cries being audible long after it had tlisap- 
pearwl in the .shades of the forest." 

One word respecting that distressing 
habit of swinging fheir head which we 
have all seen elephants indulge in while iu 
captivity, and which goes as near I o pro- 
duce sea-fiickni-.s.s in the spectator as any 
land operation can compass. This is tfi 
learned, as ha.s been .supp<>sc<l, by flnir 
having had nothing cTselo do on shipboard. 
They are equally adtlicte<l to it when in a 
wild state : some move their heatl monot- 
onously ill a circle, or from right to left 
{nwMhat is the movement we complahi of); 
others swing their feet backward and for- 
ward (like a horrid boy wilh the fidgils) ; 
.some, again, llai> their ears, or sway Ihem- 
.selves from side to .side, or rist; and sink by 
altenialely licudingand straightening their 
fore-knees, as though they would convince 
the incredulmis that they could really bend 
them. Upon ihe whole, their .size, their 
sagacilv, and this habit of swaying Ihem- 
•sefves from .side to side, suggcs.t, although 
Sir Emerson Tcniient has refrained from 
drawing it, an irresistible comjiaris'm be- 
tween elephants and our great Lexico 
grapher which has hitherto lieen applied 
only to their trunk and his mind.

.1. K. I.OWKM. 

Janus liu.ssell Lowell is an example of 
a man of the finest .abilities iiutiing his lal- 
ents tiiid«'r a bushel. If be liad worked 
as indiislriously as Lf>ngfcllow he would 
have made a great uiark on the times ; thi^ 
he cannot Ik; ^aiil to have thuic. He is one 
of those men however, who care V(!iy little 
for literary renown. As he is miMlerately 
wealthy, the chief incentives to activity in 
literature are wanting to him. 

Mr. Lowell is a man of medium height 
and rather stout lign re— would weigh pro 
bably a hundred and ^i.\ty pounds. He 
has dark, lurling, auburn hair, which parts 
naturally in the middle, like a woman's, a 
heavy red biard, a fiori<l fa<e, and blue 
eyes I le u.sually wears a " luib" coat, very 
short, of some fancy cas.«iimere,trow.sersof 
the same, and a cohued neck tie, cjirries a 
light ivory headed c;iue, and alt*»gethcr 
presents quite a "swellish ' anpwirance. 

Lowell, while he is by no meauK a nieth 
odical mail, is strongly wedded to habit. 
He never writes but in a ceilHin room, lo 
wit, the room at the back of thehousc\ on 
the fiiHt Moor, in the rear of the receplimi 
room. Tlic table in this room l^ generally 
covcreil wilh a disorderly array of pam- 
phlets and papers. Then; are some fine 
engravings on the walls, and the kmiju con- 
tains perhaps five huiidre<l Injokn. Liiwell's 
library is mostly made up of old and rare 
volumes, inherited in s<»me cases, in others 
collected at great expense. 

As everybcMly knows, the liousii in which 
IjowcII lives is at Cambridge, Mass , near 
Mount Aubnrn. The avenue (Ehnwo«.d) 
on which it stands is owned on ImiIIi siih's 
by Lowell. At its ht;wl, on Mount Auburn 
avenue, is the house where the late For 
sythe Wilson live«l— now the pioixrly of 
llie Episcopal ('ollege. Edmund Kirke's 
house is next door to this, and facing 
Lowell's. Longfellow's place is about a 
(piarler of a mile away. 

Lowell's house is upwards of a century 
old. It was used as a hoj^pital by the 
American anny at the siege of Koston. 
The three houses. Ijo well's, • Kirko'» and 
Wilson's, are on that battle field. From 
time to time pieces ol old cannon and balls 
are turned up by Um plow. The spot is on 
the edge «»f the town, and virtually iu the 
country. Lowell's grounds embrari- thirty 
or forty acres, and the next plac* to Kirk's 
is a farm of fiRy licrea. Lowell may be

to four o'clock, walking in a gnive of old

A Tickliwh Niluuiion. 

A correspondent «»f Ihe London FLef.<l 

fives the folUiwing interesting narrative: 
n .luuo, ^»'hi^, Mr. bimmonds, a farmer, 
residing at IJrooklands Farm. Weybridge, 
was dressing in order to attend a meeting 
M the Wobnrn House. Before put 
ting on his coat he netceived from his 
window an unusually large swarin-of bees, 
filling the air with their cloud aud uoibc. 
It was, in fact, as ho afterward ascertained, 
two swarms that had come out of two dis- 
Uaet hivea, and had uuiteil in the tuir. ] le 
ran out in his shirt-ileevci, and without 
his hat, to see \v here they would alij.'lrt. 
'J'he bees, after making .some circles in the 
air, led him oil to the bank of Hk; river 
Wcy. 'riiinkiiig that the bees might cro.sn 
the rivir, and perhajis e-:cape, he adopted 
a plan not uncommon with bee masters, 
namely, that of throwing tlust into the air 
among the bees. This often makes them 
.settle «iuicJ(ly. They did settle (piickly, 
aud this more so than he expected, for in a 
hlmrt lime the whole of one of the largest 
swarms hu had ever seen settled upon his 
head, face and breast. They hung down 
in fnuit like a great beard, lo the iiottom 
of Ilis waistcoat. Had he not been accus- 
tomed to bees, and perfectly collected, his 
situation would have \m'M a very danger- 
ous one ; for, had he at all irritated this 
mass of armed insects, he no doubt, would 
have received a sufficivnt number of stings 
to have placjd his life lu peril. He was 
<ibliged lo dose his eyes slowly and to keep 
his iiuiiith shut. Then, in flrder to prevent 
their cnlcring his nostrils, which Ihey en 
deavored to do, he slowly thrust one hand 
through the mas.s, and with his two lore 
fingers managtHl to keep drawing and 
pu^>liing them away from his nostrils as 
they tried to enter, lie breathing all the 
while as softly as possible. This was iie 
cessaty, as bees are generally irritated by 
being liii'athed upon, lie then began to 
consider what courst^ he should ftike. lb- 
was .some distance from his houst-, and no 
«uie near him or within «all. liis first 
thought was to walk slowly into the riv<r 
VVey, and gently sink his head under the 
water aud thus throw oil the swarm. But 
a moment's consideration dissuaded him 
from that attempted remedy. He could not 
have disengaged them all, for many were 
IkU ween his neckchdh and skin, and still 
more were crawling down his back. He 
found that if he walked he could Hot help 
disi urbiiig the hanging mass, and t hat every 
little agitation, however slight, caused a 
hum aiid a hiss from some thousands. He 
I hen remembered the account given in 
riiorley's work on bees of a swarm .settling 
on the face and neck of a .servant maid, 
who csaiped unhurt by the care antl adviie 
of heriujister; he, without irritating the 
.swarm, liaviug hived it from olfher with a 
hive well smeared with honey. To avoid 
agitating the swarm, Mr. Simmonds slowly 
knelt down on the gra.ss and remained per- 
fectly still. He then found a number of 
of Ijees were gathering in a mass under the 
waistband of his trousers in the hollow of 
his back, to which spot the others were 
drawing, indicating that the queen was 
there. Fearing, therefore, that the tight 
iie-ss of the waistbaml— rendered tighter 
whenever he breathed— might crush or at 
any rate irritate this part of the swarm, he 
slowly unbuttoned the frontof his trousers. 
It is not easy to conceive a more helpless 
condition than that to which Mr. Simmonds 
was now reducc-d. He that was the master 
of flirty liivc.s, from wuich he could usually 
levy what spoils he plea.sed, killing his 
thousands at his leisure with a brimstone 
match, was now completely in tlie power 
of one detachment of his own arm}', and 
was reduced lo the most supidiant position. 
Even to call for help would fiavebeen dan- 
gerous, as the bees near his mouth would 
have been undimbtedly irritated, and would 
have i>rol)ably eitered his moul h. At this 
mtmieiit he heard a railway train on the 
Chester Branch Kailway, from whicii he 
was about fifty yards. It fortunately hap- 
jiened that the engine driver wa3 known to 
him, and hnd a little commission to sound 
his vail way whistle if he .saw anything 
w rong among his cows and sheep. This 
cuginc driver seeing Mr. Simmonds on his 
knees, with one arm extended as if for help, 
and Ktiuething rxld hanging from his face, 
sounded his whistle. Tiiis was heard by 
Mr. Simmonds' wife, who supposed that 
some cow was ill, sent her son jiiid a farm 
ing man out into the fields. They soon 
found Mr. Simmonds in the prcdicamenl 
al»ove described. In addition to Ihe hang- 
iuir mass, flicre was a cloud of bees still 
flj-iiig around him, so that lo a|tproacli 
Inm was I'ot Ihe most agreeable ollice. 
However, they came near cm. ugh lo hear 
him speak, w hich he did very gently, mere- 
ly i-aying : " liriug a bushel hive, well 
rubbed with honey, and .some bricks" 
While they were g(»ue at the top of their 
speed for this, he remained perfectly still. 
The tickling of the bees feet on his face 
was almost unbearable, and the danger of 
. irritating those tiiat wcio down his neck 
and back was imminent. The most dilli- 
cult part he had to perform, however, was 
that before mentioned, of dissuading the 
bees, wilh the ends <>f his two fore-fingers, 
from getting up his no.strils. These bees 
were not in a good humor, as they were 
brealhe<I ujion, and were also deteiTed Irom 
doing as they jileascfl, and one bee showed 
his (iisplciisuie by stinging Mr, Simmonds 
at the fork ot his two fori; tinge is. This 
was not pleasant of itself; but it wtis a 
serious occurrence, as it might be the }»re 
hide to a more extensive attack. He 
avoided making any start when he was 
stung, and coulin'ued to push away «8 
gently as possible those that were near his 
nostrils." This was the only sal'e i)lace to 
breathe from, as it wivs nece!=sary to keci> 
his luont h perfectly cU»sed . Of cuu rse, the 
few minutes that elajised before the return 
of his son and servant seemed a terribly 
long period to Mr. Simmonds, aud during 
tin- whole of it he remained as motionlcs.'i 
as possible on his knees. On tln-ir arrival, 
the hive was placed on three bricks, with 
its mouth downward, and 3Lr. Simmonds 
slowly laid himself on his breast on the 
the grass, with his head clo.se lo the hive. 
The homy soon affracled the bee.s nearest 
to it, and a slow movement, of the bees 
took place, till at length the whole swarm 
gathered ilself under and williin the hive, 
except, a few patches of Ix-es, which, in 
widkinr away, Mr. Simmonds (>asily disen- 
gaged from liis dress with his haiulu, and 
made them join their <ompanions. Mr. 
Simmonds thus escaped from not only a 
very disagreeable but a perilous .situation. 
Il occuuied two Hours from the lime the 
bees alighted on their master to the lime 
of his release.

fully one million dollars per week. In 
case it is determi icd to inaugurate a vig- 
orous campaign, 'xpendituies will soon be 
needed to meet Die wants of the increas<-d 
force of about five millions per week. Thus 
far, sinai the trouble began, every Indian 
killed has cost the Government over a 
million dollars and the lives of about ten 
white men.

the following wonderful feat in Mount 
Joy, Lancaster county, Penn., a few days 
ago: He threw his ball on the roof of a 
house, and it rolled down into the eaves 
trough. After Iriving vainly attempted to 
gf t a ludiler from his father, he went lothe 
gable end of the lnuise — a large two-story 
brick building — and ascended the light- 
ning rod to the peak ofthe roof. After 
having thrown himself around the chim- 
ney, he walked down the side of the roof, 
picked his ball out of the eaves trough and 
threw it down on the pavement, lie then 
walkcnl up to the peak of the roof, swung 
himself around the chimney upon the 
lightning pmI and descended to the ground. 
All this svas accomplished in abimt three 
minutes time. It is only necessary to add 
that tli<' hoy is named Simon Camenm

Howth, Ireland, which is published in a 
Dublin newspaper : " I think I told you in

would not allow thel'zjir, while in France, 
to learn that tlie shol intended to strike 
him, had more directly nu-naced another 
breast. That decision imposed on the 
press a reserve w hlch was faithfully at- 
tendtitl to, but which, at present, as the 
Czar is gt)ne, is no longer neces.sa!y. 

— It is.saitl th.il the Emperor Napoleon 
and the Sultan of Turkey are blo«Kl icla 
li<uis— cousins. The story is that about 
the lime the beautiful Jowphine came to 
France she had a cousin, a Cteole like her- 
self, only if po.ssible more Ix-autiful, who, 
on her voyag(! to Europe, was taken pris- 
oner by an Algerine corsair, and sent by 
the Dey .as a present lo the Sultan. She 
became the Sultana, as lier cousin became 
Empress. The jncJciU Sulhin is hergrand- 
son, as the present Eini»eror is the grand- 
son of Josephine. So when the Emperor 
welcomes the Sultan in the ro3-al fashion 
as his bcdoved cousin it will not bo a mere 
formality.

A Valuable Receipt. — A correspond- 
ent writes to the Philadelphia Ledger, that 
six years' experience have convinced him 
that a coat of gum copal varnish, applied 
to the soles ot boots and shoes, and re- 
peated as it dries until the pores are filled, 
and the surface shines like polished ma- 
hogany, will make the soles waterprr)of, 
and also cause them to last three times as 
hmg as ordinary soles. 

I^LANTs Kou niio Krn.iiKN.— Take a 
saucer and fill it with fresh, green moss. 
Place in the centre! a jiinc cone, having 
lir.sl wet it thoroughly. Then sprinkle it 
plentifully with grass seed. The moisture 
will close the cone partially, and in a day 
or two the tiny grass spires will appear in 
all the interstices, and in a week you will 
have a jierfect cone of beautiful verdure. 
It only wants a plentiful supply of water 
to be a " thing of beauty " all summer. 

How TO Kkki' Hams Tuuoloh Slm-

hang them up and smoke them well, take 
them down and dip Ihem int(j boiling 
water lor a few seconds ; that will kill all 
the eggs of mseets, if there should be any 
onllKin; then roll them in ashes while 
wet, and hang them uj) again ; smoke them 
miua; if you choo.se. This will do also for 
shouldei-s and sides; also those that do their 
baecm in this way, will never have any 
bugs or skippers on their meat. 

Rkmedv kou CiioKKi) Cattle.— Take a 
small parcel of gunpowder, about two or 
three thimbles full — make a small funnel 
with thiu paper, sufHcient only to hold the 
powder ; close the large end by folding — 
insert in the pa.ssagc of the throat either 
with the fingers or hand, or by using a 
small sticrk— split .so as lo grasp the small 
end of the funnel, and to be easily with- 
ilrawn when desired. Nothing else to be 
done. This has l)een tried successfully by 
some of the best stock raisers in this vi

any ca.se. 

Houses Oveu iiKACiirNo— Bemedy. — 
A a»rrc^p<uidciif says: "Make the .shoe 
its natural length, or a trifle longer, with 
the toe calk of the forward shoe high and 
the heel calk low. The hoof will then 
stand farther forward, and more removed 
fnmi the stride of the hind foot, which, be- 
ing shod with a low toe calk and high heel 
<alk, w ill strike the ground before it reaches 
the fore loot. An interfering horse usual- 
ly strikes with the inside of the hoof, about 
two inches from the loe; therefore, make 
iheshoe straighteron the inside and rasp 
the ho(d' aceonlingly."

Th4> ISc-w Koutc to tlie Puc-iiic. 

The rajiiil progress in the «;onstructifm 
of the Pacific liailroad and the prospect 
of its f;ompleti(m before the close of IMTO 
raises Ihc important (piestiou as to if.sj)rob 
able etl'ect upon the future commerce of 
the country. First of all, it is patent tliat 
this new highway to the Pacific must open 
up a vast extent of territory valuable in 
the precious metals and in agricultural re- 
sources. As in the Gisc of all our pioneer 
roads, it is to be anticipated that popula- 
tion will rapidly locate along its rou*c, and 
especially in those parts which ofl'er the 
temptations of rich mineral deposits. Col- 
«uMdo, Nevada and Idaho are alrea<ly 
contributing an aggregate supply of treas- 
ure nearly espial lothe product I»f Califor- 
nia : but the development of their resources 
is being to a large extent held in abeyance 
uiitU the new road afl'ords them the facili- 
ties ol cheaper labor and saler transporta- 
tion to the Atlantic. Following the min- 
ijig population, there must be an accession 
of agriculturists and traders, whose wants 
will have to Ije supplied from the interior. 
One of the fisrt results to be anticipated 
from the r ad, therefore, must be the open- 
ing of a vast traflic with the rich country 
between Omaha City and and Salt Lake 
City; which will, at Ihc saiue time, give a 
new stimulus to the trade of the "coun- 
try, .md redound to the advantage of the 
road. 

Next conies the opening of direct rail- 
road connection with the great port of the 
Pacific. Already we have a trade by 
steamers and sailing vessels with San Fran- 
cisco covering both ways, 400 000 tons of 
freight annually, while the number of i)as- 
sengcrs by ocean and overland is estimated 
al 150,000 per annum. When the time of 
the journey is rcducetl to six days, the 
travel belw«Jcn the Pacific coast and the 
NEastern States will naturally be largely 
tncrcasptl. Eastern merchandise will then 
be in a position to compete on more favor- 
able terms in the California markets with 
the importations from other countries, and 
much of the staple manufactures now sup- 
plied by England may then be furnished 
by the factories of New England, while 
New York will wholly supply the San 
Francisco market with the finer classes of 
European products, the consumption of 
which among an extravagant and well-to- 
do population is by no means unimport- 
ant. The wool of Call fornia will be placed 
within easier reach of the Eastern man- 
uf;\cturers, which will facilitate their com 
pctiticm with the fabricants of Europe. 
At present we are importing from San 
Francisco about 3,000 bales of wotd jtcr 
annum, and the only obstacle to a large 
incsease in Ibis branch of trade is in the 
lime and cost of transportation. The 
leather exports from San Francisco are 
becoming quite important. The ship- 
ments lo New York for the last five months 
have been about 700 rolls: h()w far this 
trade could be increased, with improved 
communication, need not be indicated. 
California is rapidly rising as a grain pro- 
ducing Stal«!. From July 1st 1SG6, lo 
April iTth, 1867, San Francisco exported 
300,000,000 i)ounds of wheat and 340,000 
barrels of Hour; and during the seven 
weeks ending April 27th the shipments 
of Hour by the Isthmus to New York 
were 40,000 barrels. This .shows that, 
under certain c<mlingencic8, even the 
Eastern States may derive part of the sup- 
plies ol brcailstufls from the Pacific ports. 
We cite these facts as illustrating the ten- 
dency of California to become an import- 
ant source of supply of some of the 
larger staples of ccunmerce, to even the 
Atlantic States, and as indicating that the 
new route of communication is likely to 
serve for more important purpo.ses than as 
a miere conveyance of the precums metals. 
Vast as istlic'distance between our Athin- 
ticand rticlfic coa.st8, yet there is every 
reason to believe that within ten years the 
population of the two seclitma will be 
found exchanging their nmlual pnxlucls 
to an extent hitherto undreampt of 

We apprehend, however, that important 
as these pundy domestic advantages of 
overland communication between the At 
lantic and Pacific may appear, yet the 
conse<iuenci'a t« our foreign trade will ulti- 
mately i»rove lar greater. We do not see 
how the Pacific; Uallroad can tail to ulti- 
mately revolutionize the w<irld'8 commerce. 
It is v'lpar that the shortest route for mer- 
chandise from the ports of England and 
the continent to China, India, Australia 
and the west c<m.st of South America will 
Im' via New York and San Francisco. 
Englantl is dependent for the transportation 
of freight t^) the I'ast upon sailing vessels. 
The voyage fmm Loiulon t<) China aver- 
ages about 100 days. By the use of steam- 
ers fo New York, and from San Francisco 
to China, the time cxrupied in the 'trans- 
portation of merchandise would be as 
follows : 

Liverpool to Now York 18 days.

Cey loo, Australia and the Pacific coast of 
South America. The Cape route must 
therefore be superseded from the date of 
the opening of the route across the Ameri- 
can Continent, so far, at. least, as respects 
the higher and more valuable class of 
freight. This prospect opens to the 
American people a new commercial vista 
little expected by the commercial powers 
ot Europe, and which n ust introduce the 
most important changes in our trading 
relations with the rest of the world. That 
a large amount of the trade of the Old 
World will b(! transferred tons seems ea.sily 
imaginable. That PJnghind will continue 
to be the great distributing centre she now 
is, and that London will retain its posititm 
as the centre of the world's exchanges, are 
questions admitting of giave consideration 
not lo say doubt. In lie meantime, it is 
for our capitalists lo duly anticipate all the 
consequences, commercial and financial, 
which may follow the completion of this 
great enterprise. , 

The ultimate completion of this stupend- 
ous enterprise is not a nu.tler admitting of 
(jueslion. The United Stales issues to the 
Unnm Pacific ItailroadCjmpany, $42,208,- 
000 of bonds ; while the company is author- 
ized to issue an 'equal am )unl of mortgage 
bonds, which constitute a first lien upon the 
road, and in addition, sto( k to the extent of 
100,000,000; besides which the company 
owns land grants valued at $2.j,000,fXK>. 
It is not presumable that the public will 
show any reluelance in taking the securilies 
of an enterprise promising such vast results 
and with an enormous prospective traffic.

Capital on a Farm. 

Many persons who have paid no atten- 
tion to the princijiles of social econcmiy 
thing that manual labor is the only source 
of ■wealth. If this were true, then a man 
with his nuked hands could produce just 
as much value in the coarse of a year as 
one with a million of cajiitjil. Let us see 
how this wilt work upon a farm. 

Under the old system of cultivation, a 
hundred and fifty lo two hundred dollars 
would furnish all the implements necessa- 
ry for carrying on a large farm. Novo it 
is an easy matter to in^ est from ten to 
fifteen hundred dollars for implements to 
carry on the same farm, and with that 
capital, one man will jtnKluce as much 
from the land as five men could without it. 
Some may suppose that the difi'erence is 
attributable to the inventive genius and 
labor which pnxluced the machiue.s. It is, 
orijinaUy, it is true, but all that is paid for 
by the farmer who purchases and uses the 
machines, and they henct forth become his 
capital, just like any other accumulations 
of labor and jireviims capital. 

Capital, it slumld always be remembered, 
consists of the accumulaii ms of labor, ai.d 
of capital i)reviously acquired, and that 
capital, joined with labor is capable of 
reproducing itself. Otherwise there would 
be no motive for accumulating anything. 
And here we may remark, en passard, that 
those who owe capital liuch a spite that 
they would fain rob its fruits of its own 
agency, in production, would, just so far, 
destroy all motive for its accumulation, 
and banish it from the world. 

They seem to act on the principle that 
every poor man would be belter off if his 
rich neighbor could be induced lo become 
as poor ;is himself 

W^ilhin the memory of men now living, 
agriculture was not'supjiosed lo be capa- 
ble of furnishing capiial, properly defined, 
with very much employment. A few sim- 
ple instruments were al; that were sup- 
posed to be capable of aiding the farmer, 
and the reel was done b/ hard, muscular 
Exertion — by the sweat I)f the face. But 
how wonderfully has all tills beeu changed 
within the last thirty juars! Inslead of 
toiling and sweating all fummer over the 
hoe, the scythe and the ciadle, the farmer 
may jump into a spring seat and drive 
gaily around his fields, viiile capital does 
his planting and hoeing, and reaping and 
mowing as if it were a thing of life and 
thought, and instinct with marvellous 
skill. And instead of dri mming all win- 
ter long with a flail up )n a barn Qtx>r to 
thresh out a few hundred bushels of grain, 
he doubles forces with hU neighbors, and 
the howling, huncry, iron-toothed thresh- 
er digests its thousands of bushels in a few 
days, and the crop is oft to market, and 
the treasury notes are in .ais till drawing, 
interest. 

Capital is henceforth to be a permanent 
copartner with labor in the prosecution 
of agriculture; nor will that necessity tend 
to the consolid.alion of landed interests in 
the hands of a few. Agricrultural machin- 
ery will pay for itself so fist that a farmer 
Can work himself into tie jwssession of 
all, or most of the moderr improvements, 
with but Mile more effort than was for- 
merly needed to possess himself of the 
few simple imi>lemenls ol the olden time. 
The use of machinery ma;* lend lo restrain 
a too minute subdjvisicm'of lands, wliich 
in France and some other European 
States has long been fel ; as an evil ; but 
we are confident it will not impose any 
greater restraint in this direction than the 
true ecoMomy and the bes". interests of all 
will demand. 

Every farmer, then, should have his eye 
upon furnishing himself, as fast as his cir- 
cumstances will- permit wlh all those im- 
provements in .implements which, from 
the extent of his farm a id the nature of 
its proclucts, he can profitably employ. —

Throw away your falae frittea, yoar awltbai>

REAPARATOR CAPILLI. 
For restoring hair upon bald heads, {from 
whatever cauae it may have fallen out) and forc- 
ing a growth of bulr upon the face, it has no 
equal. It will force the beard to grow upon tha 
smoothest face in from five to eight weeks or 
hair upon bald heads in from two to tnr«e months. 
A few ignorant practitioners have asMerted thai 
there is nothing that will force or hasten tha 
growth of the hair or beard. Their assertion! 
are false, as thousands of living, witness (from 
their own experience) can bear witness. But 
many will hay, how are wa to distinguish the 

Sennine from the spurious f It cerlainiy is dit 
cult, as nine-tenths of the diflerent Preparation! 
adveitised for the hair and beard are entirely 
worthless, and yon may have already thrown a. 
way large amounts in their purchase. To BUCD 
we would say, try the Keparator Cappilli ; it will 
cost vou noihing unless it fully comes up to oui 
reprc'sen rations. If your Druggist does not keep 
it, send us one dollar. and we will forward it, 
postpaid, together with a receipt for the money, 
which will be returned to you on application, 
providing entire satisfaction is not given.

hours the river was running full from 
shore to shore. This morning only a

day the number afloat has been compar- 
atively small. 

The total loss by this flood, up to the 
present time, sums up in round num- 
bers to thirty million feet.

The number of logs in Rum Klver is 
estimated at from forty to fifty millions 
of feet, being all that is left of the win-

cept six or seven millloQ feet jammed ia 
between Nicollet Island and the St. An-

cut by the mills the present season. 

THE PACIFIC RAILROAD BRIDGE. 

About eight o'clock this mornine. the 
abutment of the St. Paul and Pacific 
railroad bridge on the Nicollet Ibland 
shore, gave way, and the end of one span 



along ifi bank. Mr. J. A. Dnuklee, 
wood dealer of this town sustained a se-

rise was so sudden and rapid that he had 
no time to save his wood on the baak., 
and npwards of 200 cords floated off. — 
He BOBUins » loss of over $1,200. We

DEMOCRATS ORGANIZE. 

We see evidence all over the country, 
and more especially in our own State, 
that the great Democratic party is alive 
to the tremendous bsues involved in the 
present campaicrn, and are taking time 
by the forelock, in thoroughly organiz- 
ing their forces in every town through- 
out the State, knowing that this is the 
only way by which we can get out the 
full democratic strength. Henceforth, 
let every town committee, every candi- 
date, and every active Democrat work 
with that object in view, and we assure 
you a glorieus victory will be your re- 
ward on the Ist Tuesday in November. 

The following geatlemen were elected 
at the Democratic Countv Convention, 
as the Central Committee for the ensu- 
in^ year. 

G. Kraycnbuhl, Chairman. E. Reus- 
se, Benton. J. Winninghoff, Chaska.

will be said about 
the river drying up. This certainly 
mu.st dispell all such vain illusions. 



Haying. — Our farmers are busily 
engaged in harvestinj!^ their winter sup- 



loss. They will mostly Le caught helow, ' ply of hay. In the interior we are in 
and after deducting the expenses and fall- 
ing upon a glutted market, will probably 
realize half their value, tnakiog the to- 
tal loss to the lumber trade about $200,- 
000. 

With /?f/y mUh't.ns o/?og»yct to be 
sawed, and the Damages to be repaired, 
there will be^abundant employment for

For ResisierlBg Afegro^t. 

This is the Secretary of War's e&timate 
as appears from the President's message. 
This is in addition to $30,000,000 per 
ftnnum for running the Bureau, so as to 
earry the elections for the Radicals ;and 
these immense sums, we must pay by our 
income taxes, and by the high tariff 
which adds from 50 to 100 per cent, to

Sambo in an expensive luxury. We 
have already paid out more money to 
make him a Republican voter, than it 
would have cost us to have transported 
the entire crew to Africa and given them 
» farm apiece. But then, in Africa, they 
could not have voted for the Radicals, 
tnd the Union would have been restor- 
ed, whio'h would have ousted the Radi- 
cals from power, and this would never 
have answered. We pool whites must 
be enslaved the balance of our days by 
high taxes and high tariffs to make 
Hottentot voters for the Radicals, and 
the Union must be dissolved and despo- 
tism establiiihcd until this important 
end is accomplished. In the classic

Negro Suffrage ia Nen¥ York. 

Much to the disgust of the Radical 
wing of the New York Republicans, and 
the same wing everywhere else, the New 
York constitutional convention, with a 
large Republican majority, have voted 
down the resolution declaring that "ne- 
groes are entitled to the same rights and 
immunities as citizens of European de> 
scent," 

The negro suffrage idea was thus re- 
pudiated by a vote of 48 to 41. 

The question is to be submitted to the 
people as a separate proposition from the 
constitution. 

The Minneapolis "Tribune" calls this 
a considerable copperhead victory, and 
says Nasby ought to take np his resi- 
dence there. 

Mr. Nasby will soon find so many pla- 
ces where he ought to take up his resi- 
dence that it is quite probably he wiU 
have to be ubiquitous. We trust this 
news will not greatly overcome those 
tender souls, who fear that this may get 
to be a "white man's government." —

Champion Bed Bottoms. — Messrs. 
F. & H. Wolff are about commencing 
the canvass of Carver, Sibley and Mc- 
Leod Counties, with '-Duffys' Bed Bot-

cal and durable Patent we ever saw. — 
We have them in our bed, and can ur- 
gently press our readers to give them a 
trial believing, aye, knowing that after 
such trial would not be without them in 
your family. Those having them in 
their beds in our town are loud in their

the right for five counties.

The Riter. — The river at this place 
Saturday and Sunday raised 24 inche.<>, 
probably occasioned by "back water" 
from the Mississippi, it is still on the

raising very slowly at Mankato.

was in town on Friday last looking as 
good and pleasing as usual. 

E. Bohrer, of the firm of Boher Mor- 
rison & Reeves, St Paul, was also in 
town on Saturday on business. Mr. B. 
is a tip-top good fellow, and is a good 
business man, and belongs to a good 
firm. 

Strangers. — We notice a large num- 
ber of strangers are at the "Planters 
house" probably on their way up to 
Glencoe, and Hutchinson, it is realysur- 
prising to see so many winding their 
way up that direction, we cant account 
for it in any other way than that. —

proprietorsof the "Glencoe Stage lioute"

inducements enough to make any one

" Oh, of course he did not mention her," 
said Fred; "and I merely tell you because 
if you choose to put yourseli under my 
guidance, I mav be the means of helping 
you to a cooil thing. You kaow," he added 
more dttiberately, " how disinterested my 
asdiitauce can be al\er the little confidences 
we exchanged last night." 

" True," said I, charmed with the recol- 
lection, "your pretty cousin— the secret 
engagement — " 

"Yes," interrupted Fre4; "you know 
all about it ; and we know more about 
each other than most fellows ; so it was 
natural 1 should think of you as a com- 
panion for my holiday, and. I'm right glad 
you're inclinea tor the trip." 

So saying, and silencing my renewed 
protestations of pleasure, Fred left me, 
appointing a rendezvous at the first train 
leaving fur our destination, some two or 
three hours later. 

Fred Clayton and I had been school-fel- 
lows in our early 4ays, and many of his 
vacations were spentln toy Other's house. 
Of late years, however, he had lived exclu- 
sively in London ; like me, a young aspir- 
ant to the uncertain honors of the bar, but, 
unlike me, possessing a large circle of 
friends and acquaintances, and never with- 
out a superabondT'nce jpf^. invitations to 
dinners, balls and concerts ; for Fred was 
said to be very pojp|Ular, especially in la- 
dies' society. 

Except in the nure fact we were both 
younger sons without &tS expectations 
there was but little resemblance between 
Fred Clayton aud Jack Harris. My. resi- 
dence in London only dated back a few 
months, and already tbe-«reat city pos- 
sessed no charm for me; 1 pined for the 
country, for freedom, and forthe active life ] 
of home. I might, indeed^wUh the assist- 
ance of Clayton, or thr.-ugh letters of in- 
troduction from membera-of my own fam- 
ily, have procured fashionable invitations, 
and received partial toleratio* in society ; 
but the prospect 61 a crush, heated rooms 
and strange faces, was a lliouglit of terror 
to my timid nature, especially with the un- 
derlying chance of presentation to a young 
lady, and the unhappy knowledge that my 
deficiencies in the art of small talk would 
make such a chance a prospective martyr- 
dom. No ; I confessed in- jny own heart 
that society wa.«i not my fbrte ; other talents 
1 certainly had— deeper, more intrinsic 
merits than those that passed lor genuine 
in a l)all r(K)m— but they were merits to 
develop in an atmosphere of peacefulness 
and repose ; qualities to expand in the 
(luiet ot a domestic hearth. And a thrill 
of jny shot through me as, cramming every 
available article of clothing into a small 
portmanteau, I took leate" (tf my comforta- 
ble chambers and allowed my fancy to 
iwell on a brilliant possibility that Clay- 
ton's words liad evoked, kh heiress and 
a beauty — a country beaiitv, of course ; 
blushes and simplicity, ana rich— how 
rich V Kich enough to live on a grand es- 
tate; to keep a large stud; to dispense 
princely hospitahty? I must ask Fred. 
This, however, was secrmdary. I would 
not, of course, acknowledge myself to be 
mercenary. Love must come flrsl^i love, 
independent of fortune-*^ . ;*' 

" Dike Diun's klB<*. nnasked, nnvdtlgbt, 
Love giv<;s itself, but is not Iwugbt." 

So I assured myself; but "then, in all can- 
dor, I did not anticipate any very great 
difficulty on this score, for I liad ever been 
painfully susceptible of the tender passion. 
Finally, for success, I must trust some- 
what to my own individual attractions 
(and here a nervous tremor seized me), and 
not a little to the co-operation of my 
friend, for whose pre-engagement I was 
more gratified than I liked to acknowledge 
to myselt

" Fifty thousand pounds," said Clayton, 
in answer to my inquiries, when wc fcad se- 
cured a coupe to ourselves, and werp pre- 
paring it fur the a^mfoj^ of aH ftlturfe trav- 
elers by lighting our cigatu; "fifty thous 
and, my boy, and the estate, il you con- 
sent to tak« her name;" 

"Her name? What is her name ? " I 
asked. • • ' -^i 

•' Ktflng— Miss Effing," lie replied. " And 
now, il you think the attempt worth mak- 
ing, I will let you know how the laxtd lies, 
and give you a sketch of your c^impaign. 
The time is short, and of course I cannot 
insure you a second inviiatiou if all is not 
concluded during our present trip. Now 
then, old fellow, pro or can f " 

My reply was given with a fervor quite 
warranted by the occasion. 



Fred Clayton threw himself back in his 
seat, and after arrivitig, by much perse- 
verance, at* suflioieiitiy comlortable por- 
tion, hebegtin his instructions, interrupted 
only by aVi omisional putt at his cigar, 
which momentary paus*^ reudereil his 
wonls all the more impressive— at least 1 

**"*()ur^great difficulty," said he, " is the 
uncle, Mr. Merrick- his name is Merrick 
1 told you before he was eccent nc ; Init 
-^ • that to not the word^* exacting describes 
him better. He is awfully exacting, and 
possesses immense intluenceover his niece ; 
an influence so great that his choice would 
be hers, even were she not still under age, 
which i believe she is. My dear fellow, 
all depends upon the impre.'wion yon make 
iu that quarter. Icaunot e-vuiajtrate the 
importance of devt>ting yourself from the 
very first to Merrick— studying his tastes, 
sharing his jiloasures, aud attaching him 
firmly to your interests. The old fellow is 
so selfish in insisting on these attentions 
that I don't think, were 1 even tree, 1 
could stand enough of his society to in- 
sure success. But there's no knowing, the 
priae is well worth winning, and perlectly 
attainable through him, aud through him 

alone." ..,.-. , 

" And alKUit Miss Effing ? " I inquired. 
« Miss Effing is a charming girl," said 
Fred, "t[Uite ytmng, and ready to believe 
anything bad of a lover her uncle tt>n- 
demns. Being an heiress and a beauty, 
she has already received several proposals, 
but all have beeu rejected in consequence 
of the suitors having had the egregious 
folly to pay more attention to the niece 
than to th« uncle." 

So then the uncle was the only real diffi- 
culty— not a very grave one, 1 thought. 
At all events, forewarneil was forearmed, 
aud 1 inwardly vowed to tax my patience 
to the utmost tor so great a stake. At the 
moment it did not occur to me how re- 
markably well-intormed Claytou appeared 
on all that concerned our future host. I 
was only too glad to find him so well able 
to advise me, and perhaps a little relievetl 
that the great result did not involve much 
courtship or attendauce on a young lady. 
We were not long in arriving at the sta- 
tion, where a dog-cart was in waiting to 
receive us, and after a rather cold drive of 
a couple of miles we reached our destina- 
tion. 

Mr. Merrick's, or Miss Efflng's house— 
for I did not know to whom it actually be- 
longed—was a large, handsome building, 
sitiiated in a fine park, with undulating 
lawn and well planted trees— so much I 
was able to perceive in the growing dark- 
ness. 

oiir arrival had been heralded by a 
handsome pointer that we found reposing 
on the terrace ; and, on alighting, we were 
met by Mr. Merrick, who treateti me to a 
long aud most unequivocal stare, and after 
greetings and introductions, hurried us ott 
to our several apartments to prepare for 
diimer. 

I shall never forget that dressing. I had 
heard so much of first impressions, I be- 
lieved in them so implicitly, that my de- 
sire to produce the proper eftect almost 
amounted to frenzy, and I could have 
strangled Fred Clayton for his coolness 
and equanimity, when he good-naturedly 
came into my room to accompany me down 
through the ordeal of a first appearance in 
a drawing-room. 

Miss Emng was there ; and the moment 
I saw her 1 understood the failure ot all for- 
mer suitors ; I realized the almost super- 
human effort that would be necessary vol- 
untarily to resign such companionship for 
that of the superannuated uncle, and re- 
solved to steel myself by the constant rec- 
ollection of my predecessors' fates. Grace- 
ful, witty and lively to a degree, no wonder 
the old man dreaded to lose the sunlight of 
her presence, and the affectionate charm of 
her manner towards himself. 

With exemplary fortitude I dashed at my 
task, and before the evening was over 
found myself, to my great surprise, estab- 
lished as the chosen companion of Mr. 
Merrick. I listened withadmirably-got-up 
interest to long, dreary anecdotes of his 
past experiences, comprising minute de- 
tails of the dates and even hours at which 
people, long since dead, had been born — 
the memories of these old people are al- 
ways prodigious ! — and submitted to an ac- 
count of his present devotion to the col- 
lecting of minerals, which now occupied 
all his time, except during the shooting 
season, lor the old gentleman was very 
proud of still being able to carry a gun. 

Of course I immediately professed my- 
self an enthusiast on the subject of miner- 
alogy, and was lorthwith carried off in tri- 
umph to a large cavernous den, to admire 
what he called his specimens. 

The examination of these hitleous little 
bits ot tin and stone lasted, it appeared to 
me, about two hours ; and when, ultimate- 
ly, we returned to the drawing-room, hu- 
man nature asserted its rights, and uncon- 
sciously I stole over to the piano, where 
Miss Efflng's fairy fingers wandered list- 
lessly over the keys, while Fred Clayton 
stood before her looking through some.mu- 
sic. Immediately a warning glance from 
Fred recalled to me a sense of danger, and 
turning in the direction of Mr. Merrick I 
perceived an unmistakable scowl upon his 
face, as he watched the party. Hastening 
to his side, 1 succeeded partially in remov- 
ing it, by the proposal of a game ot chess, 
which absorbed all his faculties, and ago- 
nized all mine, till the general move was 
made for retiring. 

As I approached Miss Efflng to wish her 
good night, I overheard the old tyrant re- 
mark, condescendingly, to Fred, " Yflur 
friend is an intelligent fellow ; we sympa- 
thize, and I like hun ; rather superficial in 
mineralogy, but we must try aud remedy 
that by making the most of our time, as 
your stay will not extend beyond a few 
days. In fact, the young man quite inter- 
ests me ; I wish you had his tastes, Fred- 
erick." 

So virtue was rewarded, and I had made 
a good impression. 



and also betrayed what would have been 
hi" tactics, h;ul he not felt secure ; and yet 
sucUknow ledge argued a mor«' intimate as- 
stwialion with Fred's ufiairs than 1 should 
liave expected from a man whose present 
hospitality was foundeil «m a Ihirty-years- 
ago acquaintanceship with his father ; but, 
on reflection, 1 detected in it an act of 
gcnertwity on the part of my iriend, who 
had evidently taken the old man into his 
confidence, to set hia mind at ejuse, and 
leave him i)«»lectly free to be won over by 
me. 

So time wore on, and, as tin* day fixed 
iov our departure approached I began to 
feel a triHe qualmish, iu spite of Uie unde- 
niable lavor shown mo by Mr. Merrick. 
It was all very well to liavo secured the 
uncle— it 1 had secured him ; but was I 
certain of Securing the niece? I had 
si-arcely exchanged half a dozen woals 
with her. Old Merrick had remorselessly 
absorlHKi every second of my time— the 
covers all day, luineralogy and chess all 
the evening, till the very sight of a chess- 
board generated a ntiusea that I have never 
suice got rid of; and the suspicion that the 
lady had been to<i much overlooked in our 
calcuhitions, suddenly struck me with an 
uncomfortable sensation of doubt. 

1 determined to speak to Fred, and seized 
the opportunity that evening, when Miss 
Effing had retired, to i>ropose a cigar on 
the terrace — a proposition to which Fred 
readily consented. The case was speedily 
represented, aud Fred's answer, as usual, 
(x>ncise. 

" You have done admirably," he assert- 
ed, " and deserve, I must admit, immense 
credit for so fully carrying i)Ut our plans ; 
and I feel tliat I cannot congratuhite my- 
self or you too heartily. Kow, perceive 
the result: the old fellow swears by you, 
and 1 have drawn Miss Efflng's attention 
to the high opinion entertained of you by 
her uncle. Of course, to alter your hue of 
conduct now, wo.uld be to destroy every- 
thing. You would be accused of a rune, 
suspected of intentions, and summarily 
ejected. Consistency, my dear fellow, be- 
lieve me^ unvarying consistency, is your 
only course — unremitting devotion to the 
ogre ; delicate diffidence towards the niece ; 
and on the morning of our departure, 
when the neat prospect of losing his con- 
genial spirit, as he calls you, has unnerved 
our friend, a solemn interview in the li- 
brary, a formal proposal, and you return 
to town an engaged man ! Is it not as 
clear as daylight ?— straight lord and inevi- 
table in every point, because so simple. 
Y'^ou retain your pedestal, remain consist- 
ent, and the result comes about quite nat- 
urally, through and in consequence of that 
very consistency. 

1 looked at Fred with admiration ; every- 
thing appeared so feasible when detailed 
by him in a few simple words, his very 
tones of semi-indifl'erence had a wondrous 
power of conviction ; and, moreover, my 
own common sense responded to the asser- 
tion that a change of manner w^ould be 
fatal. I saw my way straight before me, 
plain and easy as an ordinary transaction 
ot life, and the horizon grew bright with 
hope. . 

Warmly thanking my friend for the m- 
valuable benefit ot his shrewd sense and 
convincing advice, I withdrew to my 
room, mind filled with the most sanguine 
projects, more tangible hopes, than I had 
yet indulged in, since the beginning of my 
adventure. 



III. 



The next morning we started early, in- 
tent on the wholesale slaughter of par- 
tridges ; and on this occasion Fred hurt 
his hand so severely as to incapacitate him 
from joining our future expeditions; in 
fact, every possible combination of circum- 
stances favorable to my advancement ia 
the good graces of Mr. jlerrick seemed to 
surroimd me. To say what an effort it re- 
quired to submit cheerfully to his perpetu- 
al presence would be impossible. He ap- 
peared, after a little, to regard my contin- 
ual companionship as a matter of course ; 
and so well had I acted my part that the 
man actually believed I enjoyed his socie- 
ty. Presuming, therefore, on my estab- 
lished popularity, 1 ventured casually, on 
an occasion that appeared favorable, to in- 
troduce the subject of his niece into one of 
our conversations. 

" Ah ! " said he, and his face grew hard 
instantly, " Bella retjuires to be watched 
closely. She is .so honest and noble-mind- 
ed herself that she cannot understand the 
mercenary designs of the butterflies that 
flutter about her. But I never lose sight 
ot her ; I am always there to ward off art- 
ful attentions, and keep would be suitors 
at bay. I am always there, and I shall be 
always there ; but," he added, changing 
his tone, which had been growing excited, 
" it is well we are free fmm such intruders 
at present. I have never seen so little of 
my niece as during your visit. Yon have 
made me forget myself and her ; but then 
it is- only once in a lifetime that one may 
meet so congenial a spirit as yours ; ana, 
as for Frederick, Bella knows— and he 
would not dare runo. He stopped with a 
growl. 

Mr. Merrick was then aware of Clay- 
ton's secret engagement. This accounted 
for what had already somewhat puzzled 
me— his apparent indifference to the young 
and fascinating lawyer's constant tele aide 
with his niece; but his marked emphasis 
ou the word nova solved the Incongruity, 



IV. 

At length the momentous morning 
dawned. We had prolonged our lew day's 
stay to a week, and our host had evidently 
determined not to renew his invimtion, 
spite of the manifest pleasure my compa- 
ny gave him, so, almost before I could 
realize it, the eventful day arrived. 

I passed a sleepless and disturbed night, 
several times starting from a confused, 
dreamy rehearsal of the interview I in- 
tended demanding in the mornmg, to fancy 
I heard whispering voices and confused 
sounds about the house, qiiite uupossible 
at that late hour. Visions 'floated before 
me of the already approaching future; 
the events of the last tew days seemed to 
spread back over hal my life, so great was 
the importance attached to their issue; 
and now the culminating point was reached, 
I felt already the foreshadowing of my 
victory ; for had I not fulfilled every con- 
dition ?— had 1 not accomplished the task 
in which every other competitor had 
failed? And the question of the young 
lady's possible opposition was merely 
doubtful enough to give excitement to the 
denouement. Did not all young ladies first 
oppose and ultimately yield, with very lii- 
tfe persuasion, to all parents and guardians? 
How much more so then in the present 
case, where the circumstances were so ex- 
ceptionally strong in my favor ! 

1 had not been long awake, and was de- 
bating in my own mind whether or not 
to start on an early walk, and by a dose of 
fresh air to brace up my shattered nerves 
and stimulate them for the -coming scene, 
when 1 was startled from my cogitation 
by a tap at the door, and almost immedi- 
ately Mr. Merrick's valet stood before me. 
This was a most unprecedented occur- 
rence ; hitherto a servant had never enter- 
ed my room without being summoned, and 
this man seldom even then. 

A vague presentiment of evil seized me, 
and I turned uneasily to look at him. One 
glance sufficed ; he was ghastly pale, and 
seemed half insane with alarm, utterly 
unable to conjecture the cause, but certain 
that something terrible must have happen- 
ed, I gasped, " What is it ? " 

" O, sir ! don't you know ? " said he — 
" are you sure you don't know? They're 

fone, sir— bolted— Mr. Fred and Sliss 
Sella- the two of them, and the new maid 
— off in a post chaise three good hours ago. 
And who's to tell the governor I don't 
know ; I daren't," 

The man might have gone on speaking 
forever— in tact he did go on ; but beyond 
those first few words, not a syllable was 
intelligible to me. My first impulse was 
to bound up and strangle him then and 
there, but the effort was a miserable fail- 
ure, and I fell back powerless, paralyzed. 
No suspicion of a possible mi-take, no 
crumb ot comfort in a momentary feeling 
of incredulity sustained me; the man's 
manner bore the stamp of truth ; his ter- 
ror wa.« too real, his statement too concise 
to leave room for a doubt. It was by no 

Ernccas of reasoning, by no mental review, 
y no recapitulation of events that the 
light broke in on me, but suddenly, in an 
instant, vrith the violence of a galvanic 
sh<x;k, I realized how completely I had 
been sold, utilized, taken in ! 

At last, a movement ou the part of the 
servant attracted my attention; he was 
handing me a letter, and had probably 
been describing how it came into his pos- 
session, but of this I had not heard a 
word. My sensations can neither be miag- 
ined or descrilied when, on looking at it, 
1 recognized the writing of my traitorous 
friend. Had the viper left his sting there? 
I hesitated to touch the dishonored paper. 
At that moment a violent ringing of the 
bells announced Mr. Merrick's kvec ; and 
tbrf)wing the note on the table, the t!36tract- 
ed valet rushed from the room, muttering. 
" I cannot tell it— I cannot : Thomas must 

go to him." , , 

Alone with my enemy, I screwed up my 
courage and broke the seal. The note was 
short and ran as follows : 

•' Deaii Jack : — Pray accept my best 
thanks. But for your efficient aid we coud 
never have successfully hofHiwinkcd old 
Argus. You are an apt pupil, and 1 sin- 
cerely wisii you equal success in all your 
future undertakings. 
" Yours, by all the bonds of gratitude, 

Fkbd Clayton." 

P. 8.— Bella insists on apologising ; so I 
enclose." , _, . , 

There was then another epistlel I looked 
abftiit ; It had fallen ou the tloor. I opened 
it meciianically, and read : 

" Dbak Mic Hauris:- 1 hope you will 
forgive Fred. What he did was for my 



liai.i.iucss. We have long been attache4, 
and secretly etfgaged ; but my ^nc'e was 
BO obdurate and so vigilant, that an elope- 
ment was our only iet\jge. and but tor your 
assistance, could not have been ellected. 
Trusting soon to receito from your own 
lips pardon for a harmless stratagem, be- 
Ueve me yours, (by the Ume you receive 

^^^^' " Bblla 'C^aytoh ' Effino." 

" Please,8ir, Mr. MerricK wishes to apeak 
with you." ■ ., „ 

The door of my room was wide open, 
and on its threshold stood the old butler, 
grave and severe of aspect. 1 tolI*)Wed 
him sUeutly, too fuU of bitterness tor 
words, but solacing myself wilh the reflec- 
tion that in my host I should find a tiio- 
rough sympathizer in my overwhelming 
anger and indignatioh. 

Iwas ushered into a small sitting- room, 
where rM. Merrick, in a flaming red dress- 
ing gown, and absolutely purple with lury, 
was pacing up and down like a wild beast 
in a cage. Before 1 could open my lips, 
ho urned sharply round on me, roared 
out,—" S», sir, do you know I have sent 
for the police 1 Do you know you can be 
taken up lor this conspiracy t I .see it all 
now,— the infamous plot, and the part you 
were brought here to play. Fool that I 
was ! " " But Mr. Mernck," I began. 

" Silence I " he e.vdaimed. " Do you 
dare to taunt me ? Have 1 not forbid len 
Fretlerick Clayton this house scores of 
times? and, in letting Bella ask him here 
for a few days, could I refuse her first re- 
quest on coming of age? Could I turn a 
guest, though uninvited, out of a house 
that was not my own ? A guest, indeetl ! 
a swindler, a blackgjiard, probably paid to 
amuse the uncle, and keep him off the 
scent." 

His voice rose higher and higher as he 
proceeded ; at the end he actually shrieked. 
But this was unbearable. My own temper 
had been severely tried, and endure more 
I could not. 

" Mr. Merrick," I said, hotly, " such lan- 
guage, even under the circumstances—" ^^ 
"Can't you leave off acting even now?" 
he burst in. "Confound your gaping look 
of innocence ! Do you see this ? " he 
cried, exhibiting a crushed letter which he 
kept clenched in his hand. "They are 
married by this time, and your villany has 
thus far succeeled ; but the triumph shall 
not last long. I will hunt the scoundrel 
and his contemptible accomplice— ycs,you 
—through every law court in Europe ; I 
will publish his infamy iu every newspa- 
per, aud proclauu it throughout the civil- 
ized world I Tou shall not escape me, — 
you shall not ! ' 

The madman shook his fist in my face, 
and glared at me like a tiger ; but, stagger- 
ed as I was by such revelations and accu- 
sations, I nevertheless made one more at- 
tempt at a protest. " Your nephew—" I 
began. 

" My nephew ! " he yelled, " do you think 
that reptile is my nephew ? No, my fine 
keeper, I am no longer your dupe ; I can 
see now your shallow shamming, and I or- 
der you to leave my house. Do you hear ? 
leave it instantly or I will order my ser- 
vant to kick you out," he cried, pomting 
to the door as he spoke. 

I hesitated ; Fate seemed too cruel. I 
fell that the smallest justification or ex- 
planation wrtuld lessen my misery ; but 
before a sound could pass my lips, he had 
raised his hand with a savage menace, — 
" One word more and I give the order." 

There was nothing for me but to retreat; 
and retreat 1 accordingly did from the room 
and from the house, leaving instructions 
with the servants to send my belongings 
to the railway station,— that station form 
which I had driven only a few days before 
with such pleasurable emotions and ambi- 
tious hones. 

Mr. Slemck's unexpected reading of the 
case had indeed brought my wrongs to a 
climax. It was not enough to have been 
the tool, the dupe, the catspaw of one 1 
believed my best friend ; I was also to be 
stigmatized as the confederate, the paid 
agent ot a plot of which I was the princi- 
pal victim. Truly I had reached the sum- 
mit of human wretchedness. 

The whole of the scheme which Miss or 
(Mrs.) Bella so obligingly called a "harm- 
less stratagem," unlolded itself by degrees 
to my mind's eye; and, struggle as I 
would, I could not banish the thought of 
how the designing pair must have chuck- 
led over my credulity, and watched with 
malicious amusement my unremitting de 
votion to the avuncular conquest. The 
last drop of bitterness had been poure<l 
into my cup ; a lifetime of experience had 
been crowded into the space of a few days, 
and swallowing my humiliation as b*'st I 
could, I returned to London, — a wiser, it 
not a better man. 

It is scarcely necessary to add that long 
before the return of the bride and bride 
groom, Mr. Merrick had resigned himself 
to submit peaceably to the inevitable ; and 
nothing more was heard of the terrible 
vengeance destined to overtake Fred. Clay- 
ton and his guilty accomplice. 



A RAlL.ROAI> CHASE. 



BY 8. IC CABFSNTBB. 

From the New York Herald. 
I have been a railroad engineer many 
years, and reading a short time ago of a 
singular railroad adventure in England, 
has prompted me to give an account of an 
incident m my own experience. I wm^ 
running on the Southern road, in ChiRT 
South Americ-a- a line of about eighty 
miles, extending from Santiago to San Fer- 
nando. The Northern road starts out trom 
the same depot at Santiago and runs to 
Valparaiso, one hundred and twenty miles. 
It was my day off, when, alK>ut four o'clock 
in the aiternoon, the superintendent sent 
for me, and said he wislied me to make up 
the Northern night train at seven o'clock, 
as the yard engine had broke down and all 
the others were out on the line except the 
"Maipu," which was to take the train 
through, and he did not like to put that 
work on her engineer, as the night was a 
stormy one and he would have it hard 
enough at his regular post The train 
was to go out at half past seven, and con- 
sisted of freight cars, with a few passenger 
coaches attached to the rear. I had luiule 
up the train and was backing into the yard 
again with two cars of the Southern road, 
in order to get them imder shelter, wlien 
my attention was attracted by the locomo- 
tive Valparaiso suddenly starting out and 
rushing down the road. Almost at the 
same moment the superintendent came 
running from the office, breathlessly sprang 
on my engine, shouted to a ample of men 
to get into the cars, and told me to run out 
on the Northern road at the highest speed. 
The superintendent was terribly excited, 
and as I moved ahead out of the station he 
said, " Henry is in one of his fits again U> 
night, and has gone on with the Maipu. 
He will piwh her through till he smashes 
into the up-train. I have telegraphed to 
Llaillai and Qnillota to c'ear the stations 
and keep the line open for two specials ; 
and to Limache to switch the Maipu oft 
the track into the mud if she don't stop. 
We can catch him, 1 think ; hook on nnd 
Bt^)p him. For God's sake, drive her last I" 
The situation flashed through my mind in 
a moment. Henr)', the superintendent's 
son, had been an engineer, and was injured 
on the line some months before, since 
which time he had not been allowed to run 
in consequence of occasional attacks of 
insanity. At such peritnls he imagined 
that he was to run a special, ami could 
with difficulty be restrained from violence 
when opposed. One of his fits was now on 
him, and ciumingly eluding tho watchful- 
ness of his father, he had taken the Maipu 
in the absence of the engineer, got control 
of the fireman by some means, was tearing 
along tho road, already four or five miles 
ah^. Henry had been like a brother to 
me, and as I nettled down upon my seat at 
the window, I determined Ui make ft a run 
for success or death. Although the Maipu 
was a long ways ahead, there were several 



things In my fiivor. She was an BngliAh 
engine, and could run through to Valpa- 
raiso if well haudktd, without slo|>ping for 
wood or water ; bift her drivers were too 
small for very great speed. 1 had the 
Firefly, an American locomotive, wilh im- 
mense drivers, and believed lliat I couM 
drive her steadily at sixty miles an hour on 
a proper road. Besides, 1 had two Ameri- 
can passenger cars to balance me, and I felt 
pretty sure that if 1 coulil get hold of the 
Maipu my brakes would hold her. 

From Santiago the road stretches for 
thirty miles in a straight lino up the level 
valley, then turns to the left, ascending a 
steep aud lortucms ravine to the summit of 
the mountain, from which it descends at 
another very sleep grade for twelve miles 
down to jjluillai, tlirough three tunnels, 
along fright! id precipices iMul acrut>s dark 
ravines tnat make one dizzy to h)ok into. 
From Llaillai there is anoUicr long straight 
run up a valley, through the efty of Qnil- 
lota and past numerous stations till, ninety 
miles from Santiago, we strike the heavy 
grade and tunnel of Limache. The tun- 
nel is 1,800 feet long, and three miles be- 
yond is the village where the Maipu was 
to be stopped. There were hut two trains 
coming up, one which left Valparaiso at 4 
p. M. and would be sloppetl by the teh-gram 
at Llaillai ; and the regular night train, 
which the Maipu wouhl ]>robably meet if 
unchecked, just beyond Limaclia. 1 felt 
certain that Henry would uot slop at any 
of the stations, nor regard the dangerous 
parts of the road, but would dash reckless- 
ly on at a rate of speed which 1 dared not 
maiutain on some of the curves and 
bridges. Besides, my two cars, while they 
w«)uld assist on the levels and beyond the 
summit, would retard me ou the up grades, 
and I knew that 1 had to bring into use 
not only the utmost capacity of my engine, 
but all my faculties and experience. 

In a few minutes after leaving the depot 
at Santiago I had plenty of steam, and 
opening the throttle a little the Firefly 
seemed to settle down to her work like a 
racehorse. I pushed aside the window and 
leaned out to listen to the machinery. 
Everything played as steadily as a clock. 
The smooth rails scarcely clanked as we 
swept along, and as the speed increased the 
hum of the drivers aud quiver of the en- 
gine thrilled me like elictricity. Once I 
saw the glare of the Maipu far ahead in 
the darkness, as her fireman opened the 
furnace doors, but 1 cou d not tell whether 
I was gaining on her or not ; and in a short 
time the curves of the mountain pass hid 
her from me altogether. We rushed ou 
past Colina, Tiltil and Montenegro with- 
out slacking up, climbed the grade to the 
summit, aud. shutting off steam, swept 
Hke a meteor down the rocky mountain 
side. The night was one of the wik'est of 
the season. A fierce wind, laden with sleet 
beat heavily against the window of my 
cab, and as my "headlight flashed along the 
thorn bushes' 1)y the side of the road, 
writhing and twisting in the storm, seemed 
like the flitting spectres of some horrid 
dream. Now the light would illuminate 
some chasm, into which the engine ap- 
peared to be plunging; but the wheels 
clung surely to the shining rails, and glid- 
ing along the curve the Firefly would dash 
into a tunnel and round the rocky blufl's 
as if imbued with demoniac fife. Fi om the 
foot of the mountain I could see the Ughts 
of the station at' Llaillai gleaming faintly 
through the rain, and the great fiery eye 
of the up-train's engine ; but the signal- 
lanterns answered my whistle " all right," 
and we rushed through the long station, 
crowded with excited people, at almost a 
mile a minute. Beyond Llaillai I again 
got a glimpse of the Maipu's Hi ht, and 
knew I was gaming on her ; but half the 
allotted distance was already run. As we 
struck each straight section of the line, 
and now and then saw the bright gleam of 
the Maipu's furnace reflected iu her steam, 
the superinteudeut would become more ex- 
cited, but he never spoke to me ; and the 
minutes slipped away, with nothing to 
break the monotony of our anxiety. 

I had ran nearly eighty miles, and still 
had plenty ot coal aud water. My only 
fear was for the journals of the passenger 
cars, but they had not yet given any trouble; 
and passing through the long street of 
Quillota, as I emerged from the town and 
saw the Maipu but a mile ahead, I put my 
engine to her utmost speed. Il appeared 
sometimes as if the Firefly leaped clear of 
the rails ; and in spite of the two cars be- 
hind, she swayed to and fro so violently 
that 1 had to stand up and steady myself 
with one hand cm the throttle and the other 
on the reversing bar. Petty soon my head 
light began to shine on the Maipu's tender, 
then her number came out in bright, gild- 
ed letters, and in a lew moments her <;ab 
became so lighted up as to reveal Henry 
and the fireman distinctly. Henry had 
discovered me several minutes before, and 
evidently suspecting my intention, had 
crowded on speed, but his drivers were no 
match for mine, aud we entered the tunne' 
near Limache almost together. Limache 
is three miles beyond the tunnel, but there 
the road turns in a sharp curve and runs 
up the other side of the little valley in a 
direction parallel to that followed by the 
line at the tunnel, and distant only about 
a mile and a half. As we shot out of the 
tunnel I looked to the right, and away 
through the darkness could seethe up train 
on the same rails and with only about 
eight miles of track between us. In an in- 
stant 1 caught the fireman, shouted in his 
ear to ttSe the thottle and to whistle 
" djown brakes— hard" when I signalled, 
and then rushed out along the cngiue to 
the front. Henry saw me and seemed 
hesitating whether to leave his post aud 
beat me back from his tender, but 1 quickly 
stepped down ou the cowcatcher, aud was 
hitiden from view. As I stomi on the nar- 
row frame, with the earth glistening away 
so swiftly under me, and waiting lor the 
short space between me and the Maipu s 
to close up, all sense of my perilous l(K)t- 
hold was lost in the overwhelming realiza- 
tion of the danger a head. A collision 
with the passenger train or a plunge down 
the embaukment from the open switch was 
certain unless 1 could couple iu time to 
stop the Maipu. There were not over five 
minutes lefl Should I risk the loss of the 
Firefly and the lives of all on board, in 
trying to accomplish an apparent impos- 
sibility or should 1 check the awful speed 
we were making, save ourselves, and let 
the Maipu rush on alone to destruction. 

I have a faint recollection of frantically 
straining at the connecting rod to force 
down the coupling bolt, a sudden jerk as I 
went past the smokestack, and a paralyz- 
ing chill of terror, but the rest is all a blank, 
1 awoke out of what seemed to have been 
a long nightmare, and found myself in a 
darkened room, with not a soimd except 
the low rustle of a dress where some one 
sat rocking in au easy chair beyond tho 
curtains. Careful nursing brought me out 
in a few weeks, but not before I learned 
that I was thrown from the engine when 
the fireman reversed, and that the Maipu 
was sjived. The Fiielly and my bln>ug 
brakes had stoppetlher within a few feet of 
the open rails, when the diflercncc ot a 
second would have dashed her to peices. 
Harry was sent to an asylum, and 1 believe 
has since recovered, but i» not permitted 
to have anything to do with railroading. 
The fireman whom he overpowered and 
bent to his will also gotten over his scare, 
and runs with me on the h ir efly.

and Mejia last. The carriages step, and 
the prisoners eel out among the conclave. 
One can hardty see a dry eye, and tokens 
of dissatistaction are manifested.

"rou>e*\uent. iu a remote decree, on last 
nisrht's supper," sugirtsttd Fred Clayton, 
♦Vuul a iiood ileal, al-o, on the way in whiih 
y 'u keep cot>ped up in these dismal quar- 
ters." 

Fred glanced contemptuously round my 
diiis:y Temple chambers as he spoke— a 
surVty scarcely necessary, considerini; 
their intimate resemblance to his own ad- 
joining riKims. However, I forbore any 
reiiuuk; indeed, the delifrhtful prospect 
just presented to mo absorbed all my allen- 
tion, and I jrrasped my trieud's h:md iu a 
fever of irratiludc. 

" Tell me all about it," I said, " and how 
you came to think of me." 

*• Tlun- is nothinii to tell," replied Fred, 
seating' himself on the corner of the tab'e 
aud swiniiing his Icl'S backwards and for- 
wards la/ily.' " This moruiug I got a letter 
fnuu an old fel'ow in the country, remind- 
ing me— as if I could remember it— that 
he aud mv father had been friends thirty 
years a^ro" and asking me down to his place 
for a few days shooting, with permission to 
brini: a friend if I liked." 

'• Anil his niece that you told me of— the 
heiress?" said 1. 

" Oh. of course he did not mention her," 
said Fred; "aud I merely tell you because 
if vou choose to put yourself under my 
guidance, I may be the means of helping 
you to a M> kmI t hing. You know," he added 
more delilxratelv, " how disinterested my 
asjiiilauce can be after the little contidences 
we exclianatd last night." 

•• True," said I, charmed with the recol- 
lection, "your pretty cousin— the secret 
engaeemeut — " 

"Yes," inierrupted Fre#; "you know 
all about it; and we know more about 
each other ihau most fellows; so i,t was 
natural I should think of you as a "com- 
panion for my holiday, and I'm right glad 
you're inclined tor the trip." 

So saying, and silencing my renewed 
protestations of pleasure, Fred left me, 
appointing a rendezvous at the tirst train 
leavinsj fur our destination, some two or 
three hours later. 

Fred Clayton and I had been school-fel- 
lows in our early dAys, and many ot his 
vacations were spent in my father's house. 
Of late vears, however, he had lived exclu- 
sively in London ; like me, a young aspir- 
ant to the uncertain honors of the bar, but, 
unlike me, possessing a large circle of 
friends and at quaintances, and never with- 
out a .suj»erabandr.nce jpf invitations to 
dinners, balls and concerts ; for Fred was 
said lo be very popular, especially in la- 
dies' society. 

Except in the m;.re fact we were both 
j-ouuger s«»us without any expectations 
there was but little resenildance between 
Fred Clayton aud .Jack Harris. My resi- 
dence in' London only dated back a few 
months, and already th« great city pos- 
sessed no charm for me; 1 pined for the 
country, for freedom, and tor the active life 
of home. I mitfht., indeed, with the assist- 
ance of Clayton, or Ihr-ugh letters of in- 
troduction from membera.of my own fam- 
ily, have procured tashionable invitations, 
and n-ceived partial toleratio* in society ; 
but the prospect 01 a crush, heated rooms 
and strange faces, was a lliought of terror 
to my timid nature, especially with the un- 
derlying chance of presentation to a young 
lady, and the unhappy knowledge that my 
deticitucies in the art of small talk would 
make such a chance a prospective martyr- 
dom. No; I confessed in my own heart 
that sr>ciely was not my forte ; other talents 
1 certainly had— deeper, more intiinsic 
merits tlian those that passed for genuine 
in a ball room— l)ut they were merits to 
develop in an atmosphere of peacefulness 
and repose ; ((iialilies lo expand in the 
fjuiet ol a domestic hearth. An<l a thrill 
of jfty shot tlirough me as, cramming every 
available article ^)f clothing into a small 
portmanteau, I took leave fU" my comforta- 
ble chamber^, and allowed my fancy to 
-Jwcll on a brilliant possibility that Clay- 
ton's words ha<l evoked. An heiress and 
a beauty— a country beauty, of course ; 
blushes and simplicity, Ana rich— how 
rich '{ Kich euou^h to live on a grand es- 
tate ; to keep a large stud; to dispense 
princely hos[>itahtyr 1 mu.st ask Fred. 
This, however, was secf»ndary. I would 
not, of course, acknowledge myself to be 
mercenary. Love must come first; love, 
independent of fortune-? 

" Itike DiunV kiH«. unnHked, nnpOnijht, 
Love f,'iv»'s its' If, but is not l)oa>;ht." 

So I assured myself; but then, in all can- 
dor, I did not anticipate any very great 
difHculty f)n this score, for I had ever been 
])ainfully susceptible of the tender passion. 
Finally, for success, I must tru.st some- 
what lo my own individual attractions 
(and here a nervous tremorseizt-d me), and 
not a little to the co-operation of my 
friend, for who've pre-engagemcnt I was 
more gralihed than I liked to acknowledge 
to myself.

" Fifty thousand pounds," said Clayton, 
in answer to my inrpiiries, when we tiad se- 
cured a coupe to ourselves, and were pre- 
paring it for the comfort of all future trav- 
elers by lighting ')ur rigars; "fifty thous 
an<l, my boy, and the estule, if you con- 
sent to takf h»ir name." 

" Her name? What is her name?" I 
a^ed. - - 

" Elflng— Miss Efflnjf," he replied. " And 
now, il you think the attempt worth mak- 
ing, 1 will let you know how the land lies, 
and give you a iskelch of yuur campaign. 
The time is short, and of course 1 cannot

My reply was tiven with a fervor quite 
warranted by the occasion.

possesses immense intlueiiceover Ins niece ; 
an intlucnce so meat that his ehoice would 
be hers, even were she not still under age, 
which I believe she is. My ilcar fellow, 
all depends upon the impression yon make 
in that quarter. 1 cannot o.\aggerale the 
importance of devoting youiselr from the 
very tirst to Merrick— studying his tastes, 
sharing his pleasures, ami attacliing him 
firmly to your intercsLs. The old fellow is 
so seltish in insisting on these attentions 
that I don't think, were 1 eViU tree. I 
could stand enough of his soeaety to in 
sure success. Ihit there's uo knowing, tlie 
priise is well worth winning, and perfectly 
attainable through him, aud through him 

alone." .. , . . , 

"Andttlumt Miss Filing?" I impured. 

"Miss Ftllng is a charming girl," s.nid 
Fred, " quite young, and ready to believe 
anything bad of a lover her uncle tt>n- 
detnns. Being an heiress and a beauty, 
she has alreadv received several proposals, 
but all have been rejected in c*)nsetiueuce 
of the suitors having had the egregious 
folly to pay more alleutiou to the uiece 
than to th« uncle." 

So then the uncle was the only real diffi- 
culty— not a very grave one, I thought. 
At all events, forewarned was forearmed, 
and 1 inwardly vowed to tax my patience 
to the utmo.-Nt for so great a stake. At the 
mi>ment it did not iweur to me how re- 
markably well-inlonned Clayton appeared 
on all that cinicerned our future host. I 
was only too glad lo fiml him so well able 
to advise me, aud perhaps a little relicveil 
that the great result did not iuvolve much 
courtship or attendance on a young lady. 

We were not long iu arriving at the sta- 
tion, where a dt)g-cart was in waiting It) 
receive us, and after a rather cold drive ot 
a couple of miles we reached our destiua- 

tiiui. 

Mr. Merrick's, or Miss Efliug's house— 
for I did not know to w houi it actually be- 
h)u;:ed— was a large, handsome building, 
siliiated iu a fine parii, with undulating 
lawn and well planted trees— so much I 
was able to perceive in the growing dark- 
ness. 

Our arrival had been heralded by a 
handsome pointer that we found reposing 
on the terrace ; and, on alightuig, we were 
met by Mr. Merrick, who treated me to a 
long and most unequivocal stare, and after 
greetings and introductions, hurried us oft 
to our several apartments to prepare for 
dinner. 

I shall never forget that dressing. I had 
heard so much of first impressions, I be- 
lieved in them so implicitly, that my de- 
sire to produce the proper eflecf almost 
amounted lo frenzv, and I could have 
strangled Fred Clayton for his co<iluess 
and equanimity, when he good-naturedly 
came into my room to accompany me down 
through the ordeal of a tirst appearance in 
a drawing-room. 

Miss Etting was there ; and the moment 
I saw her 1 iinderstood the failure ot all for- 
mer suitors ; I realized the almost super- 
human effort that would be necessary vol- 
untarily to resign such companionship for 
that of the superannuated uncle, and re- 
solveil to steel myself by the constant rec- 
ollection of my predecessors' fates. Grace- 
ful, witty and lively to a degree, no wonder 
the old man dreaded to lose the sunlight of 
her presence, and the affectionate charm of 
her manner towards himself. 

With exemplary fortitude I dashed at my 
task, and before the evening was over 
found myself, to my great surprise, estab- 
lished as the chosen companion of Mr. 
Merrick. I listened with admirably got-np 
interest to long, dreary anecdotes of his 
past e.vperiences, comprising minute de- 
tails of the dates and even hours at which 
people, long since dead, had been born — 
the memories of these old people are al- 
ways prodigious !— aud submitted to au ac- 
count of his present devotion to the col- 
lecting of minerals, which now occupied 
all his time, except during the shooting 
season, tor the old gentleman was very 
proud of still being able to carry a gun. 

Of courae I immediately professed my- 
self an enthusiast on the subject of miner- 
alogy, and was forthwith carried off in tri- 
umph to a large cavernous den, to admire 
what he callei' his specimens. 

The examination ttf these hideous little 
bits of tin and stone lasted, it appeared to 
me, about two hours ; and when, ultimate- 
ly, we returned to the drawing-room, hu- 
man nature asserted its rights, and uncon- 
s<;iously 1 .stole over to the piano, where 
Miss tfflng's fairy fingers wandered list- 
lessly over the keys, while Fred Clayton 
stood Ijefore her looking through somejnu- 
sic. Immediately a warning glance from 
Fred recalled to me a sen-^e of danger, and 
turning m the direction of Mr. Merrick I 
perceived an unmistakable scowl upon his 
face, as he watched the party. Hastening 
to his side, 1 succeeded partially in remov- 
ing il, by the propositi of a game of chess, 
which absorbed all his faculties, and ago- 
nized all mine, till the general move was 
made for retiring. 

As I approache<l Miss Effing to wish her 
good night, I overheard tin; old tyrant re- 
mark, condescendingly, to Fred, " Yi'Jur 
friend is an intelligent fellow ; we sympa- 
thize, and 1 like him ; rather superficial in 
mineralogy, but we must try aud remedy 
that by making the most of our time, as 
your stay will not extend beyond a few 
days. In fact, the young man quite inter- 
esf H me ; I wish you had his tastes, Fred- 
erick." 

bo virtue was rewarded, and I had made 
a good impression. 



generosity on the part »>f my Irieiid, who 
had evidently taken the old man int«» his 
confidence, to set hisi mind ai ease, and 
leave him pffrtectly free to be won over by 
me. 

t^o time wore t>n, and, as tlm day fixed 
tor our ileparture approached I lugan to 
teel A trifle qualmish, iu spile of tlie uiulc- 
niable favor shown me by Mr. Merrick. 
It was all very well to have securetl the 
uncle— il 1 liad .secured him ; but was I 
certain of Securing the niece? I had 
scarcely eichangeti half a dozen words 
with her. Old Merrick hail remorselessly 
ab.>iorlK'd every si'ctnul of my time— the 
covers all day, mineralogy and clies.<< all 
the evening, till the very sight of a chess- 
board generated a nausea that I have never 
since got rid t>f ; and tlie suspicion that the 



ladv had been too much ovcrliM)ked in tmr | for the police? Do y»)U know you can 



calculation.^, suildenly struck me with an 
uncomfortable se'iisatit>u of doubt. 

1 determined to speak to Fred, and seized 
the opportunity that evening, when Miss 
ElUng had retired, to propose a cigar on 
the ternice — a i>roposition to which Fred 
readily consented. The c-.ise was speeilily 
represented, aud Fred's answer, as usual, 
Ci>nci.^e. 

" Vou have done adminibly," he assert- 
ed, "and tleserve, I must admit, immense 
credit for so fully carrying out our plans ; 
anil I feel that I cannot congratulate my- 
self or you too heartily. Now, perceive 
the result: the old felitiw swears l)y you, 
and 1 have drawn Miss Efflng's attention 
to the high opinion entertained of you by 
her uncle. Of courae, to alter your line of 
conduct now, wo.uld be to destroy every- 
thing. You woulil be accused (»f a rutte, 
suspeoteti of intentions, and summarily 
eject eil. Consistency, my dear fellow, be- 
lieve me, unvarying' consistency, is your 
only course — unremitting dev«)tion to the 
ogre ; delicate diffidence towards the niece ; 
and on the morning of our departure, 
w hen the near prospect of h)8ing his con- 
cenial spirit, as lie calls you, has unnerved 
our friend, a solemn interview in the li- 
brary, a formal proposal, and you return 
to town an engageil man ! Is it not as 
clear as daylight ?— slraijihtlord and iuevi- 
talde in every i)oint, because so simple. 
You retain your peilestal, remain consi.st- 
ent, and the result comes about quite nat- 
urally, through aud in consequence ot that 
very consistency. 

I looked at Fred with admiration ; every- 
thing appeared so feasible when tletailetl 
by him in a few simple words, his very 
tones of semi-indiflerence had a wondrtnis 
power of conviction ; and, moreover, my 
own common sense resptmded to the asser- 
tion that a change of manner would be 
fatal. I saw my way straight before me, 
plain and easy as an ordinary transaction 
ot life, and the horizon grew bright with 
hope. 

Warmly thankine: my friend for the in- 
valuable benefit «)f his shrewd sense and 
convincing advice, I withdrew to my 
nwm, mind filled with the most sanguine 
projects, more tangible hopes, than I had 
yet indulged in, since the beginning of my 
adventure. 



^^"'^' " Bella 'Clayton ' Ekkino." 

" Plea8e,sir, Mr. Merricu wishes to s|)eak 
with you." ' . , 

The door of mV room was wule open, 
and on its threshold .sIo^kI the old buUer 
irrave anil severe of aspect. 1 tolloweil 
him Bileutly, too fuU of bitterness tor 
words, but solacing myself with the rcllec- 
tion that in my host 1 should hnd a tlio- 
rough s^ nq)alhizer iu my overwhelming 
anger and indicrnation. 

i was ushered into a small sitting-room, 
where rM. Merrick, in a fiaming retUlre8.s. 
ing irown, and a»>.so!utely puri>le with lury, 
was pacing iqi and down like a wild beast 
in a cage. iJefore 1 could i>pen my lips, 
he urned sharply round ou me, roared 
out,— "Sw, sir, do you know I have sent

now,— the infamous i>h>t, and the part you 
were brought here to play. Fool that I 



in. 



The next morning we started early, in- 
tent on the wholesale slaughter of par- 
tridges; and on this t)ccasion Fred hurt 
his hand so severely as to incapacitate iiim 
from joining our future expeditions; in 
fact, every possible combinatiim of circum- 
stances favorable to my advancement ia 
the good graces of Mr. Merrick seemed to 
surrouud me. To say what an efibrt it re- 
quired to submit cheerfully to his perpetu- 
al presence would Ikj impossible. He ap- 
peared, after a little, to regard my contin- 
ual companionship as a matter of cours<;; 
and .so well had I acted my part that tlie 
man actually believed I enjoyed his socie- 
ty. Presuming, therefore, on my estab- 
lished popularity, I ventured casually, on 
an occasion tliat appeared favorable, to in- 
troduce tlie 8ut)ject of his niece into one of 
our conversations. 

" Ah ! " said he, and liis face grew hard 
inscantiy, " iJella requires to be watched 
closely. She ia .so honest and noble-mind- 
ed herself that she cannot understand the 
mercenary desigua of the bulterfiies that 
Hutter about her. But I never lose sight 
of her ; I am always there to ward off art- 
ful attentions, and keep would »)e suitors 
at bay. I am always there, and I shall be 
always there; but," he added, changing 
his tone, which had been grt>wing excited, 
" it is well we an; fr«!e from «uch intruders 
at present. I have never seen so little of 
my niece as during your visit. You Jiave 
made me forget myself and her; but then 



IV. 
At length the momentous morning 
dawned. We had prolonged our lew day's 
stay to a week, and our host had evidently 
determined not to renew his inviiation, 
spile of the manifest pleasure my compa- 
ny gave him, so, almost before I could 
realize it, the eventful day arrived. 

I passed a sleepless and disturbed night, 
several times starting from a confused, 
dreamy rehearsal of the interview 1 in- 
tended demanding in the morning, to fancy 
I heard whispering voices and confused 
sounds about the house, cpiite impossible 
at that late hour. Visions 1fl(»ated before 
me of the already approaching future; 
the events of the last few days seemed to 
spread back over hal my life, s« great was 
the importance attached to their issue; 
and now the culminating point was reached, 
I tell already the foreshadowing of my 
victory ; for had I not fulfilled every con- 
dition?— had 1 not accomplished the task 
in which every other competitor had 
failed? And the question of the young 
lady's possible o|)position was merely 
doubt fulenouiih to give excitement to the 
denoutmeut. Did not all young ladies first 
oppose and ultimately yield, with very lit- 
tle persuasion, to all parents aud guardians? 
How much more so then in the present 
case, where the circumstances were so ex- 
ceptionally strong iu my favor ! 

1 had not been long awake, and was de- 
batiug in my own mind whether or not 
lo start on an early walk, and by a dose of 
fresh air to brace up my shattered nerves 
and stimulate them fi>r the -coming scene, 
wheu I was startled from my cogitation 
by a tap at the door, and almost immedi- 
ately Mr. Merrick's valet stood before me. 
This was a most unprecedented occur- 
rence ; hitherto a servant had never enter- 
ed my room without l)eing summoned, and 
this man seldom even then. 

A vague presentiment of evil seized me, 
and I turned uneasily to look at him. One 
glance sufficed ; he was ghastly pale, and 
seemed half insane with alarm. Ltterly 
unable to conjecture the cause, but certain 
that something terrible must have happen- 
ed, 1 gasped, " What is it? " 

" O, sir ! don't you know ? " said he— 
" are you sure you don't know? They're 
gone, sir— bolted— Mr. Fred and Mi.ss 
Bella— the two of them, and the new maid 
— oft in a post chaise three good hours ago. 
And who's to tell the governor I don't 
know ; I daren't" 

The man might have gone on speaking 
forever— in tact he did go on ; but beyond 
those first few words, not a syllable was 
intelligil>le to me. My first impulse was 
to bound up and strangle him then and 
there, but the effort was a miserable fail- 
ure, and I fell back powerless, iiaralyzcd. 
No suspicion of a possible nu-take, no 
crumb ot comfort in a momentary feeling 
of incredulity sustaineil me; the man's 
manner b<^re the stamp of truth ; his ter- 
ror wap too real, his statement too conci.se 
to leave room for a dcmbt. It was by no 
process of reasoning, by no mental review, 
by no recapitulation of events that the 
li;:ht broke iu on me, but suddenly, in an 
instant, with the violence of a galvanic 
sliock, I realized how completely I had 
been sold, utilized, taken in ! 

At last, a movement on the part of the 
.servant attracted my attention ; he was 
lianding me a letter, and had probably 
been describing how it came into his pi)s- 
se.ssion, but of this I had not heard a 
word. My sensations can neither l>e imag- 
ined or described when, on hK)king at it, 
I recognized the writing of my traitorous 
friend. Had the viper left his slingthere? 
1 hesitati (1 to touch the dishonored paper. 
At that moment a violent ringing of the 
bells announced Mr. Merrick's irm^ ; and 
throwing the note on the table, the t'.jstract- 
(^ valet rushed from the rtnjm, muttering. 
" I cannot tell it— 1 cannot : Thomas must 
an to him." , , 

Alone with my enemy, I screwed up my 
courage and broke the seal. The note was 
short and ran as foUows : 

" Dkau Jack: — i'ray accept my best 
thanks. But for your efficient aidwecou i 
never have suctMiSsfully hwHlwmked old 



was ! " " Bui Mr. Mernck," 1 began. 

"Silence!" he exclaimed. "Do you 
dare to taunt me ? Have 1 not forbid len 
Frederick Clayton this house scores of 
times? and, in kiting Bella ask him here 
for a few day. s, could 1 refu.se her tirst re- 
quest on coniuig of age? Could 1 turn a 
guest, though uninvited, out of a house 
that wiis uot my own ? A guest, indeed ! 
a swindler, a blackguard, probably paid to 
amuse the uucle, aud keep him off the 
scent."' 

His voice rose higher and higher as he 
proceedeil ; at the end he actually shrieked. 
But this Was unbearable. My own temper 
had been severely tried, and endure more 
I could not. 

" Mr. Merrick," I said, hotly, " such lan- 
guaee, even under the circumstances — " 

"Can't you leave ofi" acting even now?" 
he bur-st in. "Confouud yourgaping look 
of innocence! Do you see this?" he 
cried, exhibiting a crushed letter which he 
kept clenched in his hand. "They are 
married by this time, and your villany has 
thus far succee led ; but the triumph shall 
not last long. I will hunt the scoundrel 
and his coiitenptible accomplice— yes,you 
-through eve-y law court in Europe; I 
will publish his infamy iu every newspa- 
per, and proclaim it throughout the civil- 
ized world! lou shall not escape me,— 
you shall not ! ' 

The madman shook his fist in my face, 
and glared at ine like a tiger ; but, stagger- 
ed as I was by such revelations and accu- 
sation.", 1 nevertheless made one more at- 
tempt at a protest. " Y'^our nephew—" I 
began. , . , 

" My nephew ! " he yelled, " do you think 
that reptile is my nephew ? No, my tine 
keeper, I am ro longer your dupe ; I can 
see now your shallow shamming, aud I or- 
der you to leave my house. Do you hear ? 
leave il instantly or 1 will order my ser- 
vant to kick you out," he cried, pointing 
to the door as he spoke. 

1 hesitated ; Fate seemed too cruel. I 
felt that the smallest justification or ex- 
planation would lessen my misery ; but 
before a sounl could pass my lips, he had 
raised his hand with a savage menace,— 
" One word more and 1 give the order." 

There was nothing for me but to retreat; 
and retreat 1 accordingly did from the room 
and from the house, leaving instructions 
with the servants to send my belongings 
to the railway station,— that station form 
which 1 had driven <mly a few days before 
with such pleasurable emotions and ambi- 
tious hopes. 

Air. ilernck's unexpected reading of the 
case had indeed brought my wrongs to a 
climax. It was uot enough to have been 
the t(M>l, the dupe, the catspaw of one I 
believed my best friend ; I was also to be 
stigmatized as the confederate, the paid 
agent ot a plot of which I Wiis the princi- 
pal victim. Truly I had reached the sum- 
mit of human wretchedness. 

The whole of the scheme which Miss or 
(Mrs.) Bella so obligingly cdled a "harm- 
less stratagem," unfolded itself by degrees 
to my mind's eye; and, struggle as I 
would, I could not banish the thought ot 
how the designing pair must have chuck- 
led over my credulity, and watched with 
malicious amusement my unremitting de 
votion to the avuncular conquest. The 
last drop of bitterness had been poured 
into my cup ; a lifetime of experience had 
been crowded into the space of a few days, 
and swallowing my humiliation as b'st I 
could, I returned to Loudon, — a wiser, if 
not a better man. 

it is scarcely necessary to add that long 
befoie the return of the bride and bride- 
groom, Mr. Merriik had resigned himself 
to submit peaceably to the inevitable ; and 
nothing more was heard of the terrible 
vengeance destined to overtake Fred. Clay-

BY S. M. CAUI'ESTER. 

From the New York Herald. 
I have been a railroad engineer many 
years, and reading a short time ago of a 
singular railroad adventure in England, 
has prompted me to give an account of an 
incident in my own experience. 1 was^ 
running on the Southern road, in CliilV 
South America— a line of about eighty 
miles, extending from Santiago to San Fer- 
nando. The >iorthern road starts out from 
the siime depot at Santiago and runs to 
Valparaiso, one hundred and twenty miles. 
It was my day ott', when, aliout four o'clock 
in the afternoon, the superintendent sent 
for me, and said he wished me to make up 
the Northern night train at seven o'clock, 
as the yard engine had broke down and all 
tlie others were out on the line except the 
"Maipu," which was to take the train 
through, and he did uot like to put that 
work on her engineer, as the night was a 
stormy one aud he would have it hard 
enough at his regttlar post. The train 
was U) go out at half pa.st seven, and con- 
sisted of freight cars, with a few passenger 
coaches attaciieil to the rear. I liad made 
up the train and was backing into the yard 
again with two cars of the Southern road, 
iu order to get tliem under shelter, when 
my attention was attracted by the locomo- 
tive Valparaiso suddenly starting out and 
rushing down the road. Almost at the 
same moment the superintendent came 
running Inmi the office, breathlessly sprang 
on my engine, shouted U) a couple of men 
to get into the c^rs, and told me to run out 
on the Northern road at the highest speed. 
The superintendent was terribly excited, 
and as 1 moved aheml out of the station he 
said, " Henry is iu one of his fits again to- 
ni^,dit, and has gone ou with the Maipu. 
He will puvh her through till he smashes 
into the up-train. I have telegraphed to 
Llaillai and (.iiiillota to c'ear the statutns 
and keep the line open for two sjucials ; 
and to Limache to switch the Maipu off 
the track into the mud if she don't stop. 
We can catch him, I think ; h<H>k on .ind 
stop him. For (Jod'ssake, drive her last !" 
The situation flashed through my mind in 
a moment. Henry, the superintendent's 
.son, had lieen an engineer, and was injured 
on the line some months before, since 
which time he had not been allowed to run 
in consetiuence ol (K'casioual attacks of 
insanity. At such periotls ho imagined 
that he was to run a special, and emild 
with difficulty be restrainetl from violence 
when opposed. One of his tits was now on 
him, aud cunningly eluding the watchful- 
ness of his lather, he hud taken the Maipu 
in the absence of the engineer, got control 
of the fireman by some means, was tearing 
along the road, already four or fiye miles 
aheatl. Henry had lieeu like a brotlier to 
me, aud as I .milled down upon my seat at 
the window, I determined to make It a run 
lor success or death. Although the Maipu 
was a loug ways ahead, there wcru Mivural 



things in my favor. She was an English 
engine, and could run thiougii to Valpa- 
raiso if well handled, wilhoui stopping for 
wimhI or water ; hut her drivers were too 
small for very great speed. I had the 
Firefly, an Ainertcan locopiolise, with iin- 
mensi; drivers, and believed tiial I could 
drive her steadily at sixty miles an hour on 
a proper road. Besides, 1 had tw(» Ameri- 
can passenger cars to balance me, and 1 fell 
i nelly sure thai if i coidd gel hold of the 
rlaipu my brakes would hold her. 

From Santiago the road stretches for 
thirty miles in a slraij^hl line up the level 
valley, then turns to the lelt, ascending a 
steep and tortuous ravine to Ihe sumuiilof 
Ihe mountain, from which it descenl^ at 
another very steep grade for twelve miles 
down to Llaillai, lliroui;li three tunnels, 
along frightful preuipiees aud across dark 
ravines that make one dizzy to look into. 
From Llaillai there isanoUnr long straight 
run up a valley, through the eliy of Qiiil- 
lota and past numerous Mlalionslill, ninety 
miles from Santiago, we strike the heavy 
grade and tunnel of Limache. The tun- 
nel is 1,81K) feet long, and three miles be- 
yond is the village where the Maipu was 
lo be slopped. There were but two trains 
coining up, one which left Valparaiso at 4 
I*. M. and would bestoppetl by Ihe telegram 
at Llaillai ; and the regular niuht train, 
which the Maipu would ]»iobubiy meet if 
unchecked, ju.>l beyond Liinacha. 1 felt 
certain that Henry woulil not slo|> at aiiv 
of the stations, nor regard tlie daiifiiioiis 
parts of the road, but would da.sh ret k less 
ly on at a rate of speed which 1 dared not 
maiutain on some of the curves and 
bridges. Besides, my two cars, while tliey 
would assi.sl on the levels and beyond the 
summit, would retard me on the upgrades, 
and 1 knew thai 1 had to bring into u.se 
not only the utmo.sl capacity of my engine, 
but all my faculties and experience. 

in a lew mmules alter leaving the depot 
at Santiago I had plenty of steam, and 
opening the throttle a little the Firefly 
seemed to settle down to her work like a 
racehorse. I pushed af-ide the window and 
leaned out to listen U) the machinery. 
Everything i)layed as steadily us u chjck. 
The siuooUi lails teantely clanked as we 
swept along, aud as the speed increased the 
hum of the drivers aud quiver of the en- 
gine thrilled me like elictricity. Once I 
saw the glare of the Mali)U far ahead in 
the darkness, as lier fireman opened the 
furnace doors, but 1 con d not tell whether 
I was gaining on her or not ; and in a short 
time the curves of the mouutain pass hid 
her from me altogether. AVe rushed ou 
past Colina, Tiltil and Montenegro with- 
out slacking up, climbed the grade to the 
summit, and, shutting cfl' steam, swept 
tike a meteor down the rocky mountain 
side. The night was one of the wili'est of 
the season. A fierce wind, laden with sleet 
beat heavily against the window of my 
cab, and as my headlight flashed along the 
Ihoru bushes' by the side of the road, 
writhing and twisting in the storm, seemed 
like the flitting spectres of some horrid 
dream. Now the light would illuminate 
some chasm, into which the engine ap- 
peared to be plunging ; but the wheels 
clung surely to the shining rails, and glid- 
ing along the curve the Firefly would dash 
into a tunnel and round the rocky bluffs 
as if imbued with demoniac life. Fi oni the 
foot of the mouulaiu 1 could see the lights 
of the station at' Llaillai gleaiuiug faintly 
through the rain, and the great fiery eye 
of the uptraiu's engine ; but the signal- 
lanterns answered my whistle " all right," 
aud we rushed through the long station, 
crowded with excited people, at almost a 
mile a minute. Beyond Llaillai I again 
got a glimpse of the Maipu's li ht, and 
knew I was gaining on her ; but half the 
allotted distance was already run. As we 
struck each straight section of the line, 
and now and then saw the bright gleam of 
the Maipus furnace retiecti d iu her steam, 
the superiuteudeut would become more ex- 
cited, but he never spoke to me ; and the 
minutes slipped awav, with nothing to 
break the mouotony of our anxiety. 

I had ran nearly eighty miles, and still 
had plenty of coal and water. My only 
fear was for the journals of the passeuger 
Girs, but they had not yet given any trouble; 
aud passing through the long street of 
QuiHota, as I emerged from the town aud 
*aw the Maipu but a mile ahead, I put my 
engine to her uluiosl speed. It appeared 
sometimes as if the Firefly leaped clear of 
the rails ; aud in spite of the two cars be- 
hind, she swayed lo and fro so violentlv 
that I had to stand up aud steady myself 
with one baud on the throttle and the other 
on the reversing bar. Petty soon my head 
light begau b) shine on the Maipu's tender, 
then her number came out in bright, gild- 
ed letters, and in a tew moments her cab 
became so lighted up as to reveal Henry 
aud the fireman distinctly. Henry had 
discovered me several minutes before, and 
evidently suspecting my intention, hail 
crowded on speed, but his drivers were no 
match for mine, aud we entered the luune' 
near Limache almost together. Limache 
is three miles beyond the tunnel, but there 
the road turns iu a sharp curve and runs 
up the other side of the little valley in a 
direction parallel to that followed by the 
line at the tunnel, and distant only about 
a mile and a half. As we shot out of the 
tunnel I looked to tiie right, and away 
through the darkness could see the up train 
on the same rails and with only about 
eight miles of track between us. In au in- 
stant 1 c:mght the fireman, shouted in his 
ear to lake the tlioUle and to whistle 
"down brakes— hard" when 1 signalled, 
and then rushed out aloug the engine lo 
the front. Henry saw me aud seemed 
hesitating whether to leave his post and 
beat me back from his tender, but 1 quickly 
stepped down ou the cowcatcher, and was 
hidden from view. As 1 stood on the nar 
row frame, with the earth glistening away 
so swiftly under me, and waiting tor the 
short space btaweeii me aud the Maipu s 
to close up, all sense of my perilous tool- 
hold was lost in the overwhelming realiz;i- 
tion of the danger a head. A collusion 
with the passenger train or a plunge down 
the embaukmeiil from the oi>eu switch was 
certain unless 1 could couple iu time to 
stop the Maipu. There w ere uot over five 
minutes left Should I risk the loss of the 
Firetiy and the lives of all ou board, in 
trying to accomplish an apparent impos- 
sibility or should 1 check the awful speed 
we were making, save tairsclves, and let 
the Maipu rush on alone to destruction. 

I have a faint recollection of frantically 
straining at the connecting rod to force 
down the couphng bolt, a suddeu jerk as 1 
went past the smokestack, aud a paralyz 
lug chill of terror, but the rest is all a blank. 
1 awoke out of what seemed to have been 
a long nightmare, and found myself in a 
darkened room, with not a sound except 
the low rustle of a drcstj where some one 
sat rocking in au easy chair beyond the 
curtains. Careful nursing brought me out 
in a few weeks, but not lu-fore I learned 
that I was thrown from the engine when 
the fireman reversed, and that the Maipu 
was saved. The Fiielly and my strong 
brakes had stoppetlher within a few tVetot 
the open rails, when the ditlerence ol a 
second would have dashed her to peicca. 
Harry was sent to an asylum, and 1 believe 
has since recovered, but i» uot permitted 
to have anything to do with radroading 
The fireman whom he overpow'cred and 
bent to his will also gotten over his scare, 
aud runs with me ou the Fu elly.

— An act of barbarity to a dumb animal 
was very near causing the destruction of 
the whole town of Trenton, in Texas, a 
fortnight ago. Some heartless wretch sat- 
urateil a dog in turpentine and then set in 
on tire. The poor animal ran howling 
under a newly-built house, and rolling 
among the shavings ignittnl them. The 
hou.se took fire in two places, and had it 
not l»een for timely e.\eitions, every build- 
ing in the town would probably have been 
destroyed. 

—The Albany Arquit doubts the death 
of Rev. S. M. Merrill, by drowning. The 
reverend jientleman fell into the river at 
Plattsburgh, N. Y., where the water was 
shallow, refused all assistance and swam 
away from the boat. His bmly has not 
been recovered, and ii is said he planned 
a similar exploit some years ago, but it 
failed. Scandal pursues Merrill very close-

— Tlie New Orleans Picayune says: 
" During the rain storm on Tuesday after- 
noon, a young German woman, while rid- 
ing in a Dryades street car, was suddenly 
seized with the premonitory pains of labor. 
The car was hastily cleared and a fine boy 
was the result." Inasmuch as it is custo- 
mary, when a child is born at sea, to give 
it the name of the craft, or as near like it 
as circumsti^nces will permit, it is respect-, 
fully suggested that the boy be called 'Os- 
car. 

— A terrible accident occurred in Balls- 
ton, New York, last Wednesday. A lad 
named Miller went into the field to catch a 
horse, and while returning his arm became 
entrapped with the halter, when the horse 
started and dragged the little fellow round 
the field next to the rail fence. The father 
was in sight and rushed to the rescue, but 
when he reached the scene, his boy's 
brains were dashed out, the left side of his 
face was broken in, and both arms and legs 
were broken. 

—Sunday afternoon, a man stepped into 
a street-car m Buflalo, but the moment his 
eye rested on a policeman he jumped from 
the car and ran. The officer followed and 
arrested him. He begged to be released, 
and oflered a large pecuniary inducement. 
The officer took the man before thi Super- 
intendent, where he again attempted bri- 
bery, offering tis high as one thousand dol- 
lars. All this time no one but himself was 
aware that he was a criminal, or would 
have suspected him, it his own conscience 
had not tortured him into exposure. He 
said his name was Lamar C Scott, of New 
York, and, in response to a telegraph, it 
was ascertained that he was a forger who 
had disappeared itom that city. 

—About a fortnight ago two telegraph 
wires on the New York Central Railroad 
began to act very unreasonably. At ten 
o'clock in the morning they would "strike 
work," and resume at four m the afternoon. 
A careful examination of the line produced 
no result. The superintendent himself 
looked into the matter, and saw nothing. 
It was a complete puzzle. An old Albany 
operator, however, was more successful. 
About sixty miles west of that city he 
found a point where the wires passed over 
the roof of a building, almost touching it. 
As the s»n rose the wires fell, and at twelve 
o'clock they lay snugly together on the tin 
roof. As the sun fell, they cooled and rose 
and by four o'clock they were in their 
proper positions. Of course, the trouble 
was no sooner explained than rectified.

— At the Paris Exposition a balloon in 
the form of a perfect sphere and about 210 
feet in circumference, is held by a cable 
and makes hourly trips upward, in the 
same manner as worket^ in a model at the 
last exhibition by the American Institute, 
and as operated on a large scale at the New 
York Qentral Park. The balloon is tilled 
with hydrogen, the most buoyant of the 
gases, which is made by decomoosing 
steam by means of red-hot charcoal. By 
this process, it is said, hydrogen gas can 
be furnished at about $2.75 peal,000 cubic 
feet. 

—The artesian wells in Algeria, long 
attempted without success, now number 
probably about one hundred, delivering 
five or six million litres ot water p^r hour, 
and converting deserts into fine gardens 
wherever they have been bored. The 
work is going on, defrayed by tax upon 
the benefitt^ population, and is destined 
to reclaim incalculable wastes. In a single 
district (Ouled Rir) stretching far south 
into the desert, and now containing thirty- 
five wells, 2,000 new gardens have been 
formed and 150.000 date trees planted. 
Four military boring brigades, well pro- 
vided with implements, and with growing 
skill and experience, are steadily pushing 
on the conquest of the desert, and with 
almost unerring success in every attempt. 

—The Tunisian Palace, at the Paris E.x- 
position, is a beautiful Moorish building ; 
but a palace only in its exterior a8i)ect. 
Within, though lofty and beautiful, it is 
occupied by a party of Arabs engaged in 
the rudest native industries. Two men, 
squatted on the ground, arc weaving in 
the Arab style, a mat of rushes. Another 
is working on leather. A jeweler is fab- 
ricating with the rudest instriunents some 
rough but showy ornaments. An old fel- 
low in turban and immense breeches is 
lying on the gjound turning ivory. He 
has no lathe, but he has fastened his bit of 
ivory between two pieces of wood so that 
it will revolve; then with one hand he 
turns it by means of a sort of fiddle bow 
drawn across it, while he sliapes it neatly 
enough with a rough looking tool held in 
the other. The contrast between these 
rude and primitive methods and the won- 
derful machinery and manufactures in the 
palace, is a lesson which covers the whole 
progress of civilization. 



bath of muriatic acid diluted with twice 
its quantity of water. When taken out the 
metal is to be rubbed well with a scrubbing 
brush when the oxide will come off like 
dirt under the actiiin of soap. If any rust 
still remains, the process needs repeating. 
When the substance presents throughout 
the appearance of dull lead, xt must be 
thoroughly washed in plain waterand well 
dried before a fire; the polish may then be 
restored by a liUle rubbing with oil and 
fine emery powder. It is best to prepare 
the metal by washing with a hot solution 
of soda before submitting it to the action 
of the acid, for the purpose of removing 
any oil or grease. If any trace of acid is 
allowed to d^jr on, the metal will absorb 
oxygen from the atmosphere ; hence the 
necessity of its being well washed in pure 
water. 

— There is a common sort of friction- 
match composition that is a little more ex- 
plosive than gunpowder. It burns quicker 
and when confined it gives a sharper and 
louder report. The nxalches to which we 
allude ignite with a tiasli and with a slight 
crackling sound ; most of the matches, 
called parlor matches, are of this sort. 
The readi<;Bt way of making a match ex- 
plode is to lay it on the floor and press it 
with the heel of your boot. The report in 
sharpness and loudness is about the same 
as that of a precussion cap. Another way 
of making the experiment is to wrap the 
match closely in 8U)ut paper and give the 
composition end a light blow with a ham- 
mer. The explosion will be as loud as be- 
fore and the' paper will be* torn to shreds. 
There is without doubt enough explosive 
force in a box of matches to burst the 
stoutest musket. Children should never 
try the experiment of exploding matches. 
It is dangerous. The melancholy fate of 
the Austrian princess, betrothed to the son 
of Victor Emmanuel, and burned to death 
but the other day in consequence of tread- 
ing on a lucifer match, is a warning in 
point. The greatest care should be taken 
of these too plentiful and perilous little 
articles. 

—A mechanical curiosity has recently 
been constructed in London. It is a watch 
belonging to a member of Parliament, and 
and made expressly for him by JamesFergu- 
son Cole, the celebrated London watch- 
maker. This unique pocket chronometer 
has a silver dial, on which are nine hands, 
indicating respectively the hours, minutes 
and seconds, the days of the week, the days 
of the month and the months of the year. 
It corrects itself for unequal months — that 
is to say, changes when they have thirty 
and when thiity -one days, and also corrects 
Itself for leap year. It is so constructed 
that any slight agitation of the watch, such 
as the ordinary exercise of walking winds 
it up. Thus it may be worn and will go 
perfectly for years without requiring to be 
opened, although it can also be wound by 
a key in the usual manner. The dUl isar- 
raiiired in five circles, and within the largest 
(the hour circle) there is a semicircle show- 
ing the uux>n's age and phases by mens of 
gold on a ground of blue steel. At the 
back of the watch is a gold indicator for 
ascertaining the time in the dark by touch 
The complication of the mechanism may 
be imagined, and yet the vratch is of ordin- 
ary dimensions, and may be conveniently 
worn in any gentleman's pocket. It cost 
the siuu of 300 guineas."

" companies," not caring to save such small 
aff'drs as steam engines and tools in the 
wreck of so great hopes, these are left lying 
about loose. It is reckoned that of engines 
alone, two are stolen every day, shipped 
and sold. Farms are sold at every tax sale 
for some trifling matter of tax — farms for 
which thousands, and even hundreds of 
thousands, were paid two or three years 
ago. Sf)me of the farmers of the region 
failed to profit by the fever that raged all 
over the country. Near Pit Hole there is 
a farm, the owner of which refused $250,- 
000 for it, while to-day the same farm, 
larm-house and all could not bring |2,000.

gun, entered the brtast of a child 11 
months old, which was being held in the 
arms of its mother, at a distance of three 
hundred yards or more, killing it instantly. 
The ball passed through the fleshy part of 
the mother's arm, causing a severe wou»d. 
It is also stated that it made a flesh wound 
in her body. Mr. Tyrell gave himself up 
to the authorities, but was not held in cus-

at his house some time since by a man 
named Christy, who is now in Chicago. 



■■cidentf* and Accidents. 

— A young wife in Indiana, aged sixteen, 
lias just presented her hu.«<band, aged eight- 
een, with three bouncinij boys. 

— Lightning struck the Court House of 
Orange county, Va., last week, setting it 
on fire and destroying it and five other 
buildings. 

— At Kingston, C. W., a Miss Mooncy 
was burned by the explosion of a coal ow 
lamp, and died on the 9th. Five others 
were severely burned, 

—At Laconia, Indiana, recently, two 
brothers, named Kingsley, fought each 
other with knives, and other weapons, un- 
til both were fatally injured. 

—The principal attraction at Union 
Park, Allegheny City, Pa., on haturday, 
was the tcrial wedding and bridal excur- 
sion. Over a thousand persons were pre- 
sent 

—A little son of P. Bell, of Adamson 
Grove, Iowa, recently approaclied unno- 
ticed so near a man mowing that the point 
of the scythe entered his heart, killing him 
instantly. 



Reli^iouM Items. 

— There is a gentleman living in Taunton 
wiio has heanl five thousand six hundred 
and seven sermons, and has kept a record 
of every text thereof. 

—The late John Clark, of Baltimore, 
left the greater part of his estate of |730,- 
(KH) to St. John's Methodist Church ot that 
city, to be expended in charity. 

— Articles of association have been filed 
for a Free Will Captist College, to be locat- 
ed in Randolph county, Indiana, with a 
capital of |30,000, to be free to all sexes 
aud races. 

—The believers in the approaching mil- 
lennium are now at Warehouse Point, Ct., 
anxiously waiting to go up. The under- 
standing is that unless the present attempt 
is successful, there will not be another op- 
portunity for two thousand years. 

— A Boston clergyman recommends 
putting pictures into churches, asking the 
rich to adorn them as they do their own 
dwellings, and then open them to all. The 
best music in town should be the church 
music — a part of the debt the rich owe to 
the poor and bless themselves doubly in 
paying. 



Sentiment. 

— A Unitarian clergyman of Middlesex 
county, says : " It is doubtful whether, 
with our modem tendency, God can send 
upon society a greater combination of cur- 
ses than a truly eloquent preacher, a ten 
thousand dollar organ, and a superb opera 
choir. 

— Women often fancy themselves in love 
when they are not. The love of being 
loved, fondness of flattery, the pleasure of 
giving pain to a rival, passion for novelty 
aud ( xcitement, are frequently mistaken 
for something far better and holier, till 
marriage disenchants the fair self-deceiver 
and leaves her astonisheil at her own indif- 
ference and the evaporation of her roman- 
tic fancies. 

— To-morrow may never come to us. 
We cannot find it in any of our title-deeds.

estate, and great ships on the sea, does not 
own a single minute of to-morrow. To-

constellations. — Cluipin. 

— Popular errors: That editors keep 
public reading rooms. That they have 
plenty of time to talk to everybody. That 
they are delighted to get anything to fill 
up the paper with. That they are always 
pleased to have assistance in selecting copy 
for the paper. That every man's own pri- 
vate ax is a " matter of public interest." 
That it doesn't make much difference 
whether copy be written on both sides, 
i'hat editors return rejected manuscripts. . 

—lAoe for otherii. God has written upon 
the flower that swet^tens the air, upon the 
breeze that rocks the fl.>wer ujwn its stem, 
upon the rain drops that swell the mighty 
river, upon the dewdrop that refreshes the 
smallest sprig of moss that rears its head 
in the desert, upon the ocean that rocks 
every swimmer in its channel, upon every 
pencilled shell that sleeps in the caverns of 
the deep, as well as upon the mighty sun 
which warms an«l cheers tho millions of 
creatures that live in its light, — upon all 
has he written, " None of us liveth to him-

Saying Seed PE.\fl— Peas for Jseed 
should always be pickel as soon as they 
attain full size, before ihe pods begin to 
turn. Put them away : n the pod to dry. 
Peas dried in this manner will bring peas 
the next season fron. ten days to two 
weeks earlier than it allowed to ripen on 
the stalk, and the same rule applies to 
beans, corn, and almost all garden vegeta- 
bles, as I have proved by actual experi- 
ence. — Cor. Rural Amcican. 

Fevers akd Fruits — Let's have a little 
talk about orchards and gardens as life- 
preservers. Many a farmer thinks he 
" can't fuss about agarlen " with vegeta- 
bles and small fraits in ample variety, 
hardly about an orchard especially beyond 
apple trees. So he go<.s on to weightier 
matters of grain or 8lo( k or dairy, and eats 
potatoes, wneat bread, pork and salt beef 
all summer lohg; no fiie variety of vege- 
tables, no gratefW lorries, no luscious 
peaches or juicy cherries. By OcU)ber 
fever comes, or bowel < omplaints of some 
kind, or some congestive troubles, most 
likely. Ho is laid up, vrork stops a month, 
the aoctor comes, and he " drags round " 
aU winter, and the doctor's bill drags too. 
The poor wife, meanw liile, gets dyspeptic, 
constipated, has fever, too, perhaps, and 
she '"just crawls round." What's the mat-

they build a hot fire in July and shut the 
doors? Of course not— in their rooms; 
but they have done juut that in their poor 
stomachs. How so ? They have been eat- 
ing, all summer, the heat-producing food, 
fit for a cold season, but not for a warm 
one. A Greenlander y&n eat candles and 
whale fat, because they create heat. In 
January we are up to^rard Greenland — in 
climate. 

A Hindoo lives on frice, juicy fruits and 
tropic vegetables, cooling and opening to 
the system. In Julj we move towards 
Hindostan, in a heat almost tropical Diet

Have apples, pears, cherries, etc., from 
the orchard everyday, of early and late 
kinds. Let there be ]>lenty of good vege- 
tables, raspberries, strawberries, etc. It 
takes a little time and trouble, but it's the 
cheapest way to pay the doctor's bills.

Verdict of the Faculty. 

StlBBiantn iBdlspriisMble as Medlrtirs. 

The most distinguished physicians in the United 
States tiaTe recently been placed on the witness 
stand, and have, with one voice, dcciaied that 
pure stimulants are vaiuablo medicinal agent*. 
This decision of the faculty refers especiaUy to 
medicated stimulants, of which the purest and 
tho best at presejit known is HOSlETTKKS 
STOMACU BiTTKRS. Its basis U the alcoholic 
principle of the finest rye grown in tbe Uuiud 
SUU'S, and iu herbal inerredienU comprise lh« 
extracts of a large number of plants, bariis and 
roott prodaccd in various parts of the world, and 
all noted in the countries to which they arc in- 
digenous for their powerful saniuve properties. 
Ajs an invigorant and tonic the value of the Bitters 
can scarcely be overrated. Hence its extraordin- 
ary effect iu fever and ague and intcrmitteuts &nd 
reiuitteuu of every type. lie auu-biUous proper- 
ties are marvellous. Persons of bUious tiabu. by 
taking a amall quantity once or twice a day, may 
compii/tely change their constitutional tendency to 
liver di&eose, aud escape all the unpieacaul coute- 
quenccs which arise either from thw undue ben»i- 
liveness or the unnatural torpidity of ine biliary 
organ. Chronic constipation is eradicated thor- 
oughly aud in a very short space ol tune by small 
Uobes of this wuoiesome regulator, taken nie'ht 
aud morning ; and for aU the disorders which ar* 
buperiuduced by exhalations from decumpoeing 
vegetable aud animal matter in the streets ol cities, 
or the miasma ol swampy districts, it is, when 
taken as a protective and preveuUve medicine, th« 
most reliable of aU saiegiuuds.

Plattsburgh, N. Y., where the water was 
shallow, refused all assistance and swam 
away from the boat. His body has not 
been recovered, and ic is said he planned 
a similar exploit some years ago, but it 
failed. Scandal pursues Merrill very close- 
ly, and involves a young la<.ly at North 
Adams also. 

— The New Orleans Picayune says : 
" During the rain storm on Tuesday after- 
noon, a young German woman, while rid- 
ing in a Dryades street car, was suddenly 
seized with the premonitory pains of labor. 
The car was hastily cleared and a fine boy 
was the result." Inasmuch as it is custo- 
mary, when a child is born at sea, to give 
it the name of the craft, or as near like it 
ascircumsUinces will permit, it is respect- 
fully suggested that the boy be callcii 'Os- 
car. 

— A terrible accident occurred in Balls- 
ton, New York, last W^ednesday. A lad 
named Miller went into the field to catch a 
horse, and while returning his arm became 
entrapped with the halter, when the horse 
started and dragged the little fellow round 
the field next to the rail fence. The father 
was in sight and rushed to the rescue, but 
when he reached the scene, his boy's 
brains were dashed out, the left side of his 
face was broken in, and both arms and legs 
were broken. 

— Sunday afternoon, a man stepped into 
a street-car in Buffalo, but the moment his 
eye rested on a policeman he jumped from 
the car and ran. The officer followed and 
arrested him. He begged to be released, 
and ottered a large pecuniary inducement. 
The officer took the man before thi Super- 
intendent, where he again attempted bri- 
bery, oflering^is high as one thousand dol- 
lars. All this time no one but himself was 
aware that he was a criminal, or would 
have suspected him, it his own conscience 
had not tortured him into exposure. He 
said his name was Lamar C. Scott, of New 
York, and, in response to a telegraph, it 
was ascertained that he was a forger who 
had disappeared from that city. 

— About a fortnight ago two telegraph 
wires on the New York Central Railroad 
began to act very unreasonably. At ten 
o'clock in the morning they would "strike 
work," and resume at four in theafternoon. 
A careful examination of the line produced 
no result. The superintendent himself 
looked into the matter, and saw nothing. 
It was a complete puzzle. An old Albany 
operator, however, was more successful. 
About si.xty miles west of that city he 
found a point where the wires passed over 
the roof of a building, almost touching it. 
As the s*m rose the wires fell, and at twelve 
o'clock they lay snugly together on the tin 
roof. As the sun fell, they cooled and rose 
and by four o'clock they were in their 
proper positions. Of course, the trouble 
was no sooner explained than rectified. 

— On the evening of July 4, at Niagara 
Falls, Mr. Benjamin Tyicll, sleeping-car 
conductor on the Central railroiid, dis- 
charged a gun from the front of his resi- 
lience, and a ball, .supposed to be from his 
gun, entered the breast of a child 11 
months old, which wa.«i being held in the 
aims of its mother, at a distance of three 
hmidred yards or more, killing it instantly. 
Tlie ball pa.ssed through the fleshy part of 
the mother's arm, causing a severe w<m«d. 
It is al.so stated that it made a flesh wtmnd 
in her IkkIv. Mr. Tyrell gave himself up 
to the authorities, but was not held in cus- 
tinly. This gun, it appears, was one left 
at his house fionie time since by a man 
named Christy, who is now in Chicago. 



— Judce Edmunds of New York, claims bath of muriatic acid diluted with twice

follows: Spiritualists, G,3:{:{,000; Unitar-

Jews, 500,000 ; Infidels and skeptics, 2,(M)0,-

— At the Paris Exposition a balloon in 
the form of a perfect sphere and about 210 
feet in circumference, is held by a cable 
and makes hourly trips upward, in the 
same manner as worked in a model at the 
last exhibition by the American Institute, 
and as operated on a large scale at the Ne»w 
York Central Park. The balloon is filled 
with hydrogen, the most buoyant of the 
gases, which is made by decomposing 
steam by means of red-hot charcoal. By 
this process, it is said, hydrogen gas can 
be furnished at about $2.75 peE.1,000 cubic 
feet. 

— The artesian wells in Algeria, long 
attempted without success, now number 
probably about one hundred, delivering 
five or six million litres ot water por hour, 
and converting deserts into fine gardens 
wherever they have been bored. The 
work is going on, det'rayetl by tax upon 
the benefitted population, and is destinetl 
to reclaim incalculable wastes. In a single 
district (Ouled Rir) stretching far south 
into the desert, and now containing thirty- 
five wells, 2,000 new gardens have been 
formed and 150,000 date trees planted. 
Four military boring brigades, well pro- 
vided with implements, and with growing 
skill and experience, are steadily pushing 
on the conquest of the desert, and with 
almost unerring success in every attempt. 

— The Tunisian Palace, at the Paris Ex- 
position, is a beautiful Moorish building ; 
but a palace only in its exterior aspect. 
Within, though lofty and beautiful, it is 
occupied by a party of Arabs engaged in 
the rudest native industries. Two men, 
squatted on the ground, are weaving in 
tfie Arab style, a mat of rushes. Another 
is working on leather. A jeweler is fab- 
ricating with the rudest instruments some 
rough but showy ornaments. An old fel- 
low in turban and immense breeches is 
lying on the gjound turning ivory. He 
has no lathe, but he has fastened his bit of 
ivory between two pieces of wo<xl so that 
it will revolve; then with one hand he 
turns it by means of a sort of fiddle bow 
drawn acro.s8 it, while he shapes it neatly 
enough with a rough looking tool held in 
the other. The contrast between these 
rude and primitive methods and the won- 
derful machinery and manufactures in the 
palace, is a lesson which covers the whole 
progress of civilization. 



its quantity of water. When taken out the 
metal is to be rubbed well with a scrubbing 
brush when the oxide will come ofl' like 
dirt under the action of soap. If any rust 
still remains, the procesu needs repeating. 
When the subsuiuce presents throughout 
the appearance of dull lead, it must be 
thorouirhly washed in plain wateraud well 
drie<l before afire; the polish may then b( 
restored by a little rubbing with oil and 
fine emeiy i>owder. It is best to prepare 
tlie metal by washing with a hot Kolution 
of soda before submitting it to the action 
of the acid, for tlie purpose of removing 
any oil or grease. If any trace of acid is 
alio well to diy on, the metal will absorb 
oxygen from the atmosphere ; hence the 
nteessity ol its being well washed iu pure

— There is a common sort of friction - 
match com|>ositU)n that is a little more ex- 
plosive than gunpowder. It burns (piieker 
and wheu (;oulined it gives a sharper and 
hmder report. The matches to which we 
allude ignite with a Hash and with a slight 
crackling .stmnd ; most of the matchci', 
called parlor matches, are of this sort. 
The readi«;st way of making a match ex- 
plode is to lay It on the floor aiid prvss it 
with the heel of your boot. The report in 
sharp^iess and loudness is about the same 
as that of a precussion cap. Another way 
of making the expi-rimenl is to wrap the 
match closely in stout paper and give the 
compositi(m end a light blow with a ham- 
mer. The explosion will be as loud as be- 
fore and the pai)er will be torn to shreds. 
There is without doubt enough explo.sive 
force in a box of matches to burst the 
stoutest musket. Children should never 
try the experiment of exphiding matches. 
It is dangerous. The melancholy fate of 
the Austrian princess, betrothed to the son 
of Victor Emmanuel, and burned to death 
but the other day in cousetiueucc of Head- 
ing on a Inciter match, is a warning in 
point. The greatest care should be taken 
of these too plentiful and perilous little 
articles. 

— A mechanical curiosity has recently 
been constructed in Ltmdon. It is a watch 
belonging to a member of Parliament, and 
and made cxpres.sly for him by JaraesFergu- 
son Cole, the celebrated iJoudon watch- 
maker. This unique pocket chronometer 
has a silver dial, ou which are nine hands, 
indicating respectively the hours, minuter 
and seconds, the days of the week, the days 
of the month and the months of the year. 
It corrects itself for unequal months — that 
is to say, changes wheu they have thirty 
and when thii ly-one days, and also corrects 
Itself for leap year. It is so constructed 
that any slight agitation of the watch, such 
as the ordinary exercise of walking winds 
it up. Thus it may be worn and will go 
perfectly for years without requiring to be 
opened, although it can also be wound by 
a key in the usual manner. The dial is ar- 
ranged in five circles, and within the largest 
(the h(mr circle) there is a .semicircle show- 
ing Ihe miK>n'.-i age and phases by mens of 
gold ou a ground of blue steel. At the 
back of the watch is a gold indicator for 
ascertaining the time in the dark by touch 
The complication of the mechanism may 
be imagined, and yet the watch is of ordin- 
ary dimensions, and may be conveniently 
worn in any gentleman's pocket. It cost 
the sum of 300 guineas."

Sentiment. 

— A Unitarian clergyman of Middlesex 
county, says : " It is doubtful whether, 
with our modem tendency, God can send

— Women often f^incy themselves in love 
when they are not. The love of being 
loved, fondness of flattery, the pleasure of 
giving pain to a rival, pa.ssion for novelty 
and t xcitement, are frequently mistaken 
for something far better and holier, till 
marriage disenchants the fair self-deceiver 
and leaves her astonished at her own indif- 
ference and the evaporatitm of her roman-

Saving Seed Peah — Peas for [seed 
should always be picked as soon as they

Peas dried in this manner will bring peas

weeks earlier than it allowed to ripen on 
the stalk, and the same rule applies to 
beans, corn, and almost all garden vegeta- 
bles, as I have proved by actual experi- 
ence. — Cor. Jiural Anie'ican. 

Fevers and Fruits — Let's have a little 
talk about orchards and gardens as life- 
preservers. Many a farmer thinks he 
" can't fuss about a garden " with vegeta- 
bles and small fruits in ample variety, 
hardly about an orchari especially beyond 
apple trees. So he goes on to weightier 
matters of grain or stock or dairy, and eats 
potatoes, wneat bread, jork and salt beet 
all summer long; no fine variety of vege- 
tables, no grateful berries, no luscious 
peaches or juicy cheiries. By October 
fever comes, or bowel complaints of some 
kind, or some conges ive troubles, most 
likely. Ho is laid up, work stops a month, 
the doctor comes, and he " drags round " 
all winter, and the doctor's bill drags too. 
The poor wife, meanwliile, gets dyspeptic, 
constipated, has fever, too, perhaps, and 
she 'IJust crawls rounc ." What's the mat- 
ter ! They don't know, poor souls ! Would 
they build a hot fire in J uly and shut the 
doors? Of course not— in their rooms; 
but they have done just that in their poor 
stomachs. How so ':■ T'liey have been eat- 
ing, all summer, the heat-producing food, 
fit for a cold season, tut not for a warm 
one. A Greenlander can eat candles and 
whale fat, because thty create heat. In 
January we are up toward Greenland — in 
climate. 

A Hindoo lives on [r ce, juicy fruits and 
tropic vegetables, cooling and opening to 
the system. In July we move towards 
Hindbstan, in a heat almost tropical. Diet 
must cuange too. 

Have apples, pears, cherries, etc., from 
the orchard everyday, of early and late 
kinds. Let there be plenty of good vege- 
tables, raspberries, stj-awberries, etc. It 
takes a little time and trouble, but it's the 
cheapest way to pay the doctor's bills. 
And bless your dear souls, these things 
taste good. 

You study what feed is good for pigs and 
cattle. All right ; but .wife and children 
are of higher conse{[Uence ; and it's a 
shame if, with all our great gifts of intel- 
lect and intuition, we c.o not obey the Di- 
vine laws in our own physical being as

Josh llillixif;:*) en the CSoose. 

The goose is a grass, animal, but don't 
chaw her cud. 

They are good livers ; about one aker to 
a goose iz euulf, altho thare iz sum folks 
who thinks one goost tew 175 akers is 
nearer right. 

These two calclations are so fur apart, it 
iz difficult to tell now which will finally 
win. 

But i don't think if i had a farm ov 175 
akers, awl paid for, thst i would sell it for 
half what it was worth, just bekasc it didn't 
hav but one goose on it. Gees stay well, 
sum ov our best biographers sez 70 years, 
anil grow tufl tew the last. 

Tha la one eg atono?, about the size ov 

goose eg, in which tlie goslens Ues hidd. 

"he goslen is the go is's baby. 

_ le goose don't suckle hiz young, but 
turns him out tew giass ou sumboddy's 
vakant lot. 

Tha seem to lack wisdom, but ar gcnrally 
considered sound on tl e goos. 

Tha ar good eating, but not good chawin ; 
the rezon ov this remains a profound sekret 
tew the present da. 

Whenthe femail goos iz at work hatchen, 
she iz a hard burd to j. leze, she riles clear 
up from the bottom in a miuet, and will file 
a yoke ov oxen if tha sho her th« least bit 
ov sass. The goos iz excellent for feathers, 
which she sheds every year bv the hand- 
ful. 

Tha ar also amfibioass, besides several 
other kind ov cuss. 

But tha ar mostly curius alxiut one thing, 
tha kan haul one leg up into their boddy, 
and stand on tulher, avl day, and not tuch 
ennytbing with their hands. 

I take notis, thair ain't but fuc men kan 
dew this.

Verdict of the Faculty. 

StImalantN IiidlNp*-ii.>>Mb!e S8 Medttlnes. 

The most distinguiched phyeicians in the L'ni'ed 
States have recently heeu placed on the \viti:efes 
stand, and have, with one voice, dcciaie'l that 
pure Ptimuiauie are valuable mediciuai agents. 
This decision of the faculty refers etpecially to 
inodicaied etimalants, of which the porei-t and 
the best at prcse.it known is HOslliTTiiKS 
STOMACH BITTKKS. Ita basis it the alcoholic 
principle of the Uneiit rye grown in the Lulled 
Slates, and ita herbal iui^redienla coniprise the 
extracts of a large number of plani«, bariu and 
roots produced in various parts ot the trorid, and 
all noted in the cooniries to which they arc in- 
digenous for their powerful eaniuve propertiee. 
At! an iuvigoraiit and tonic the value of the Bitters 
can scarcely be overrated. Hence it* extraordin- 
ary ed'ect in fever and a^uc and iutermitieuif and 
reuiiiteuib of every type. It* auu-bUious proper- 
tieb are marvellous, i'er^ous ol biiious haba. by 
taking' a amuU quantity once or twice a day. ui;iy 
completely change LUeir constitutional teuueucy to 
liver disease, and escape all the unpleasant couse- 
queuccs wiucn arise either from LUv undue sensi- 
tiveness or the unuaiurai torpidity of the buiary 
organ. Chronic constipation is eradicated liior- 
oughly and in a very short space oi time by small 
Uuses ot this Wholesome regulator, tai^eu night 
and morning ; and for ail the aisorders which are 
superinduced by exiiuiatious from decouiposlnf 
vegetable and animal loatieriu lUe sireeta ol ciiies, 
or the miaAma of swampy disir.cts, it is, when 
loi^en as a protective and preveuuve medicine, th« 
most reliable of all safeguards.

Dr. Schenck's Pulmonic Sjrap. 

This great medicine cured Dr. J. H. gcHZxcK, tha 
Proprietor, of Pulmonary l^onsuuipUon, when It had 
assumed its most tormidabie aspect, aiid when speedy 
death appeare-d ine>'iiable. His physicians pronounced 
his case incurable, when he commenced the use of hia 
simple but powerful remedy. His health was restored 
in a very short Ume, and no return of the disease ha* 
been apprehended, for all the symptoms Quickly dis- 
appealed, and his present weight is more tiian two 
htmdred pounds. 

Since his recovery, he has devoted bis attention ex- 
clusively to the cure of Consumption and the disease* 
which are usually complicated with it, and the cure* 
edecied by his medicmcs have been very numerous and 
iruly wonderful. Dr. &cuK>ca makes pruleseional 
visits to several of the larger cities weekly, where ba 
has a large concourse of paueute. and it is truly aslon 
ishinx to see poor consuaipuves that have to be lilted 
out ol their carriages, and iu a lew inonUis heiulhy,

— A Metliodist clergyman in the vicinity 
of Boston was iuviteil to a public demon- 
striititm of ."^ome kind, where an expensive 
supper was served, and on the table were 
iKtttles of intoxicating drinks. On being 
re<iuested to ask tlie Divine blessing upon 
the repast, ho arose and said, "I can 
cheerfully ask God to bless Uie fbod, but 
I never yet tlared to ask his blessing on 
a bottle «>f rum." Tiie bottles were in- 
stantly removed, and tho blessing was 
then iuTukod. 



— When a pen has been used until it 
appears to be spoiled, place it over a tlame, 
a gas light for instancij, for, say :v quarter 
of a minute, and then dip in iuto water, 
and it will be a^ain tit for use. A new

REAPARATOR CAPILLI. 

For restoring hair upon bald heads, (from 
whaterer rause it may hav« fallen out) and forc- 
ing a gu.wih of hair upon the face, it has no 
equal. It will force the beard to grow upon ihe 
smoothest face in f om five to eight weeks or 
hair upon bald heads in from two to three montis. 
A few ignorant practitioners have asserted that 
there is nothing that will force or hasten ihe 
giowth of the hair or benrd. Their esserti-.ns 
are false, as thousands of living, witness (fnm 
thiirown experience) con bear witness. Hut 
many will eav, how are veto distinguish he 
genuine from the spurious ? It certainly is dif- 
ficult, as nine-tenths of the different Preparations 
adveitised for the hair and beard are entirely 
worthless, and you may have already throwii a- 
wav large amounts in their purchase. To such 
wewould sav, try the Keparator Cappilli; it 'vill 
cost Tou noibing uiiles* it fully conies up to jur 
repre'sentttttons. If vour Druggist does not kjep 
it, send us one dollar and we will forward it, 
postpaid, together with a receipt for the money, 
which will be returned to you on application, 
providing entire satisfaction is not given.
